Theories of Democracy builds on Robert Dahl's observation that there is no single theory of democracy; only theories. Beyond the broad commitment to rule by the majority, democracy involves a set of contentious debates concerning the proper function and scope of power, equality, freedom, justice, and interests. In this anthology, Ronald J. Terchek and Thomas C. Conte have brilliantly assembled the works of classical, modern, and contemporary commentators to illustrate the deep and diverse roots of the democratic ideal, as well as to provide materials for thinking about the way some contemporary theories build on different traditions of democratic theorizing. The arguments addressed in Theories of Democracy appear in the voices of authors who have championed influential theories concerning the opportunities and dangers associated with democratic politics. In this collection, Terchek and Conte have selected excerpts not as a means for promoting a particular way of looking at . . .

An elegant translation of one of the most popular novels of its time.­Rousseau's great epistolary novel, Julie, or the New Heloise, has been virtually unavailable in English since 1810. In it, Rousseau reconceptualized the relationship of the individual to the collective and articulated a new moral paradigm. The story follows the fates and smoldering passions of Julie d'Etange and St. Preux, a one-­time lover who re-­enters Julie's life at the invitation of her unsuspecting husband, M. de Wolmar.­The complex tones of this work made it a commercial success and a continental sensation when it first appeared in 1761, and its embodiment of Rousseau's system of thought, in which feelings and intellect are intertwined, redefined the function and form of fiction for decades. As the characters negotiate a complex maze of passion and virtue, their purity of soul and honest morality reveal, as Rousseau writes in his preface, "the subtleties of heart of which this work is full.­"A comprehensive . . .

Je ne voterai pas les crédits que le Gouvernement nous demande pour la glorification de Jean-­Jacques Rousseau et je voudrais m’en expliquer brièvement. J’admire autant que personne l’artiste, tout de passion et de sensibilité, le musicien, pourrais-­je dire, des Rêveries d’un promeneur solitaire, des Confessions et de la Nouvelle Héloïse. L’homme lui-­même, cette vertu pauvre et revêche alliée à cet amour lyrique de la nature et de la solitude, non, je ne ferai pas son procès. Et je ne conteste pas que du point de vue social il n’ait eu son moment d’utilité, de bienfaisance même, quand il apportait, dans une société intellectualisée à l’excès, une riche effusion d’imagination et de sentiments. Je sens toute la vérité de cette phrase que j’ai retenue d’un jeune émigré, du fils du général Custine, guillotiné par la Révolution et qui, lisant un soir dans son exil de Darmstadt ce terrible pamphlet des Liaisons dangereuses, où beaucoup voulaient voir le miroir d’une société corrompue, . . .

L'œuvre de Jean-­Jacques Rousseau a eu une influence considérable chez tous les réformateurs et révolutionnaires des xixe et xxe siècles. Rousseau a eu beaucoup d'influence sur les principaux acteurs de la Révolution française, tels que Robespierre, Saint-­Just, Marat et Babeuf. La pensée politique de Rousseau deviendra progressivement incontournable, et influencera les révolutionnaires de 1830 et de 1848, Blanqui et les Communards de 1871, les anarchistes de la fin du xixe siècle et les radicaux-­socialistes du début du xxe. On accuse Rousseau d'avoir inspiré la Terreur. En effet, Robespierre avait lu Du contrat social. Rousseau a inspiré Simón Bolívar, principal libérateur de l'Amérique latine, qui fut éduqué dans les idées de l'Émile et qui suivit les préceptes de Rousseau dans son œuvre constitutionnelle et politique dans la première moitié du xixe siècle. Le penseur politique japonais Chōmin Nakae de l'ère Meiji traduisit en 1874 une partie du Contrat social en chinois . . .

The Social Contract, Or Principles of Political Right (1762) by Jean-­Jacques Rousseau, is the book in which Rousseau theorized about social contracts as the origins of political community i.­e. civil society.­Like John Locke, who believed that a government can only be legitimate if it has been sanctioned by the people in the role of the sovereign, Rousseau claimed that a perfect society would be controlled by the "general will" of its populace. While he does not define exactly how this should be accomplished (as there are many possible ways, each suited to different situations), he suggests that assemblies be held in which every citizen can assist in determining the general will. Without this input from the people, there can be no legitimate government. Importantly, this input cannot come from representatives, but must be from the people themselves. Excerpted from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Extrait : C’en est fait, c’en est fait ; j’ai perdu mon génie… si jeune encore ! je survis à mon talent.

Mais quelle est donc cette ardeur interne qui me dévore ? Qu’ai-­je en moi qui semble m’embrâser ? Quoi ! dans la langueur d’un génie éteint, sent-­on ces émotions, sent-­on ces élans des passions impétueuses, cette inquiétude insurmontable, cette agitation secrete qui me tourmente & dont je ne puis démêler la cause ?

Coming from the hand of the Author of all things, everything is good; in the hands of man, everything degenerates. Man obliges one soil to nourish the productions of another, one tree to bear the fruits of another; he mingles and confounds climates, elements, seasons; he mutilates his dog, his horse, his slave. He overturns everything, disfigures everything; he loves deformity, monsters; he desires that nothing should be as nature made it, not even man himself. To please him, man must be broken in like a horse; man must be adapted to man's own fashion, like a tree in his garden.­[1]

Were it not for all this, matters would be still worse. No one wishes to be a half-­developed being; and in the present condition of things, a man left to himself among others from his birth would be the most deformed among them all. Prejudices, authority, necessities, example, all the social institutions in which we are submerged, would stifle nature in him, and would put nothing in its place. In such . . .
