HAPPY BIRTHDAY – Jean Jacques Rousseau, born 28 June 1712
“Man is born free, and everywhere he is in chains.”
I’ve seen his grave in the Pantheon in Paris, but I have not read his works. Somehow one becomes acquainted with his general ideas, and I know he was an extremely important 18thC figure, but I also have a feeling that reading Rousseau might send me to sleep.
Am I wrong? Have you ever read his novels? I’d be most interested to know what they are like? Tell me in the comment area below.
