    He is able to develop Rousseau book own faculties of reason, under the guidance of a tutor who is careful to observe the personal characteristics of his student and suggest study materials in Rousseau book with his individual nature. Christianity changed the organization of the state by promoting the idea of a spiritual kingdom separate from any political system. Society gives government its sovereignty when it forms the social contract to achieve liberty and well-being as a group. Next, Rousseau turns to censorship, which he believes can maintain public morality. It is important to emphasize that the demand for generality extends beyond the framing of the law to its application. He was born in GenevaSwitzerland and always described himself as being Genevan.

    Political theory The Social Contract outlines the basis for a political order of classical republicanism. Rousseau Rousseau book a large part of the concluding section to their love story as well as to a discussion of female education. Similarly, with regard to the social order, Rousseau's aim is freedom, which again does not involve a retreat to primitivism but perfect submission of the individual to what he termed the general will.

    Rousseau book who think themselves Rousseau book masters of others are indeed greater slaves than they. In addition to his contributions to philosophy, Rousseau was active as a composer and a music theorist, as the pioneer of modern autobiography, as a novelist, and as a botanist. When one group becomes large enough to dominate others, there is no general will, and only private opinion is expressed. The only natural form of authority is the authority a father has over a child, which exists only for the preservation of the child. Thus, Rousseau assumes that for most people, being a dictator would be an unwanted responsibility rather than an opportunity to pursue private interests.

The Social Contract Summary and Analysis of Book II, Chapter I

Next, Rousseau turns to censorship, which he believes can maintain public morality. While this sovereignty may be delegated in various ways as in a monarchy, a republic, or a democracy it cannot be transferred and resides ultimately with society as a whole, with the people, who Rousseau book withdraw it when necessary.

Rousseau's style, in all his writings, is always personal, sometimes bizarre, sometimes rhetorical, sometimes bitterly sarcastic, sometimes deliberately plebeian, and often animated by Rousseau book tender and musical quality unequaled in French prose.

His mother died shortly after his birth, his father abandoned him about a decade later, and his upbringing was haphazard. In a state following this religion, love of God reinforces one's love for the laws, and the individual obeys the state with a fanatical zeal.

For a dictator to save the state, he must stop legislation and do what he believes is best for the state. Analysis Rousseau acknowledges that individuals may have private interests that conflict with the general will, but expresses concern about the manipulative effect of factions.
