Emile, or, On education

Emile, or On Education was considered by Jean-Jacques Rousseau to be the?best and most important of all my writings?. On its first appearance in 1762 it was publicly burned.[citation needed]. As its title implies, Emile is a treatise on the nature of education but also on the nature of man. It tackles fundamental political and philosophical questions about the relationship between the individual and society? how, in particular, he or she might have any hope of retaining what Rousseau saw as innate human goodness while remaining part of a corrupting collectivity. Its opening sentence:?Everyth.

  • "Rousseau wrote about the difficulty of being a good individual within an inherently corrupting collectivity: society. Emile deals specifically with education, and outlines a system which would allow for human goodness. He uses the fictional story of Emile and his tutor to outline his ideas. The book was banned and publicly burned on its publication, but became a European bestseller and provided a basis for new education systems."@en
