Jean Jacques Rousseau was a great philosopher and one of the founders of the modern system of philosophy. He is in the row with the greatest thinkers as Aristotle, Isaac Newton, John Locke, Immanuel Kant, David Hume, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, and John Stuart Mill. Their thoughts has had strong influence on building the foundation of the United States and its endeavor of open society.

In 1755, Rousseau published Discourse on Political Economy. It is a revolutionary work and is regarded as his Third Discourse.  The essay is also viewed as the classic of political theory and a key source of democratic ideals of Western Civilization. Rousseau proposed concepts of the general will and individual's submission to government by contract as the foundation of democracy.
