Rousseau et les philosophes
Volume: SVEC 2010:12
Series editor: Jonathan Mallinson
Volume editor(s): Michael O’Dea
Etant donnée la diversité des articles, ce livre relève d’une approche panoramique: y sont abordés quelques-uns des nombreux aspects polémiques de l’œuvre de Rousseau.
Edward Ousselin, French Studies
Bruno Bernardi and Mark Hulliung, whose essays frame the collection, underline the timeliness of the volume: rather than pitting Rousseau against the philosophes, they invite us to follow Hulliung’s lead in reading Rousseau’s work as an “autocritique of the Enlightenment” and a guide for revisiting our own relationship to modernity. Each essay focuses on specific quarrels and debates, and while most readers will no doubt dip in where their interests lie, the volume merits being read as a whole: several of the essays echo one another and are the richer for being read together.
