Rousseau by Robert Wokler( Book )

21 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 617 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most profound thinkers of modern history, Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712-78) was a central figure of the European Enlightenment. He was also its most formidable critic, condemning the political, economic, theological, and sexual trappings of civilization along lines that would excite the enthusiasm of romantic individualists and radical revolutionaries alike. In this study of Rousseau's life and works Robert Wokler shows how his philosophy of history, his theories of music and politics, his fiction, educational and religious writings, and even his botany, were all inspired by visionary ideals of mankind's self-realization in a condition of unfettered freedom. He explains how, in regressing to classical republicanism, ancient mythology, direct communion with God, and solitude, Rousseau anticipated some post-modernist rejections of the Enlightenment as well

The Enlightenment and modernity by Norman Geras( Book )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To what extent is the Enlightenment the ghost that haunts modernity? Why do we trace our institutions of economic liberalism, our charters of human rights, our notions of representative democracy, our doctrines of the nation-state, or our disciplines of psychology and sociology to Enlightenment principles? Was the Holocaust a betrayal of Enlightenment ideals of toleration and progress or a measure of the Enlightenment's failure in letting reason and science loose from the moorings of religion? From the Enlightenment, above all other periods in our intellectual history, is drawn our belief in the unity of theory and practice. Each of these essays is addressed to the legacy of eighteenth-century thought. They offer interpretations of modern and postmodern philosophers against the background of a so-called Enlightenment Project."--Jacket

These essays concern many of the great themes of the age, including liberty, equality and the origins of revolution.
