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 had strong influence on building the foundation of the United States and its endeavor of open society.

In 1782, The Confessions was only partially published four years after Rousseau’s death. All his subsequent works were to appear posthumously. The book received a great reply of leading intellectuals of his time with essays. This is one of Rousseau's most famous book and has had the most impact on Enlightenment.

Rousseau opened with a proclamation of originality in the book: “I am commencing an undertaking, hitherto without precedent, and which will never find an imitator.” The reasons that he claimed this were twofold. First, He was absolutely honest to hold back nothing of the truth of nature. Second, he was different from the other people and the difference was the value that he desired his reader to judge.

Rousseau’s work has produced great influence on modern philosophy and logic. His view became widely recognised as the foremost philosophical voice and his influence has been felt in nearly every field of the humanities and social sciences.

This book is one of the most important ones about Rousseau’s life, philosophy, and Enlightenment by Rousseau, one of the greatest thinkers of modern philosophy on the planet.
