Synopsis

The Pulitzer Prizewinning volume on European civilization by acclaimed historians Will and Ariel Durant Rousseau and Revolution, the tenth volume of Story of Civilization, ranges over a Europe in ferment, but centers on the passionate rebelphilosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau, the great exponent of the romantic impulse toward self-exploration and social revolt, who contended with the great rationalist Voltaire for the mind of Europe. Rousseau condemned civilization as a disease, glorified the noble savage, proclaimed to the world with equal intensity his own love affairs and the natural rights of man, and became the patron saint of the revolution and the worldwide social upheavals of two centuries.
