This little treatise is part of a longer work which I began years ago without realising my limitations, and long since abandoned. Of the various fragments that might have been extracted from what I wrote, this is the most considerable, and, I think, the least unworthy of being offered to the public. The rest no longer exists.
According to Rousseau was civil disobediance a legitimate course of action????:confused:
I have recently encountered a rather elegant accusation of Rousseau's excluding women of his social equality cause and if anywhere implied in The Social contract I have obviously ignored it in reading the work.../ I suspect my motivation of reading it was somehow low, being exposed to constant threats/..Double standarts in Rousseau?...If indeed a part of his works, could the condescending attitude towards women be overlooked in Rousseau only for his well-built "masculine" social contract? How far does it depreciate the other efforts of the author, if in this case an appreciation is relevant at all? I welcome any information and comments...
