Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Author Code: FJJR

Born: Jun. 28, 1712 - Geneva, Switzerland

Died: Jul. 2, 1778 - Ermenonville, France

Rousseau led an erratic life, which was best described in his masterpiece, Confessions (1782 - posthumous). The son of a watchmaker in Geneva, Rousseau went to France and published papers on his revolt against the existing social order. These included Discourse on the Influence of Learning and Art (1750) and Discourse on the Origin of Inequality (1754). In 1761, he published a novel, La Nouvelle Heloise and his political philosophy, Du Contrat social, the following year. Also in 1762, Rousseau published Emile, which expounded his views on education, for which he was persecuted to the point that he went into exile, first to Geneva and from there to London where he remained until 1767. Rousseau had a great impact and influence on the leaders of the French Revolution.
