Rousseau et Locke: Dialogues critiques (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Surmontant une opposition souvent outree entre les deux auteurs, ce volume reevalue l'heritage de la pensee de Locke chez Rousseau, dans tous les domaines de sa philosophie (identite personnelle, epistemologie, medecine, morale, pedagogie, economie, politique). Au-dela de l'histoire intellectuelle, l'ouvrage met en lumiere le dialogue critique fecond que Rousseau entretient avec Locke, quitte a identifier les distorsions que le Citoyen de Geneve fait subir a son predecesseur. Tout en etablissant la dette de l'auteur d'Emile a l'egard du 'sage Locke', le volume discerne la pertinence des objections que Rousseau lui adresse en operant un retour a la lettre de la philosophie de Locke. En quel sens Rousseau a-t-il etabli sa philosophie sur des 'principes communs' a ceux de Locke ? Quelle subversion fait-il subir a l'Essai concernant l'entendement humain ou aux Pensees sur l'education ? Quels sont les points aveugles de la philosophie de Locke que la critique rousseauiste permet de mettre en lumiere et, a l'inverse, les limites de la critique rousseauiste de Locke ? Tels sont les axes de cet ouvrage qui reunit des specialistes, en philosophie et en litterature, de Rousseau et de Locke.


Transcending an often outraged opposition between the two authors, this volume reassesses the legacy of Locke's thought in that of Rousseau, in all the areas of his philosophy (personal identity, epistemology, medicine, morality, pedagogy, economics, politics). Beyond an intellectual history, this collected volume highlights the fruitful critical dialogue that Rousseau maintains with Locke, while identifying the ways in which the Citizen of Geneva distorted his predecessor's thought. While establishing the author of Emile's debt to the 'sage Locke', the volume also discerns the relevance of Rousseau's objections to Lockian philosophy. In what sense did Rousseau establish his own philosophy on 'common principles' to those of Locke? How does he subvert the Essay Concerning Human Understanding or the Thoughts Concerning Education? What are the blind spots in Locke's philosophy that Rousseau highlights and, conversely, the limits of Rousseau's criticism of Locke? These are the main aspects of this volume, which brings together scholars in philosophy and literature, on Rousseau and Locke.
