A treatise on the nature of education and on the nature of man. Rousseau considered this to be the "best and most important of all my writings". The section of the book entitled "Profession of Faith of the Savoyard Vicar," caused Emile to be banned in Paris and Geneva and was publicly burned in 1762, the year of its first publication. During the French Revolution, the work served as the inspiration for what became a new national system of education.
