The Confessions Of Jean-Jacques Rousseau

By A. S. B. Glover, With A New Introduction by Mr. Glover
Illustrations by William Sharp


Publisher: The Heritage Press, New York
Copyright: 1955

In telling his own story, Rousseau narrates the birth of his revolutionary philosophy: "I mean to present my fellow-mortals with a man in all the integrity of nature, and this man shall be myself." His memories of childhood celebrate the pure state of nature, inspiring his treatise on education, Émile, while his conflicts with the French authorities shape the political philosophy of his Social Contract. Alive with psychological drama, featuring a famously unreliable narrator, the Confessions are rightly considered the first modern autobiography.
