´´A country cannot subsist well without liberty, nor liberty without virtue.´´ - Rousseau ´´Virtue is a state of war, and to live in it means one always has some battle to wage against oneself.´´ - Rousseau The grand narrative of the Enlightenment, usually recounted and understood in terms of progress and modernity, generally appears as a simplified evolution from the trappings of superstition, feudalism, and everything ´´irrational´´ to a world more similar to today´s world. Alongside the Renaissance, the Enlightenment is credited for the transition to an adherence to reason, secularism, and promotion of values such as individual and collective freedom and liberty. Of course, one of the towering figures of the age was Jean Jacques Rousseau, whose works were essential to the ideological developments of the 18th century. The prestige of French literature in the 18th century resides especially in its revolutionary character; while the writers of the previous century used to support the social order through their works and showed sympathy and even attempted to explain the political order of the time, in the 18th century, art, literature, philosophy and science all contribute actively and fiercely to the fight against the absolutist monarch and his regime. While this was a current manifesting all throughout Europe, there were differences in practice, especially between close countries (as was the case of England and France). There are many books and articles published constantly on the life and works of Rousseau. What generated such an abundance of writings is the turbulent life he led and the courage and audacity he manifested while fighting the prejudices of the time and establishing his ideas firmly within the academic community. 1.

Il y aura trois siècles en juin 2012 naissait Rousseau. Ces anniversaires ont bien souvent des allures de mausolées érigés en l´honneur de grands hommes qu´on ne célèbre que pour mieux s´autoriser à oublier leur pensée. Mais à cette aune, Jean-Jacques fait encore aujourd´hui de la résistance. C´est ce que montre Jean-Paul Jouary dans ce Rousseau, citoyen du futur qui, au-delà des élèves et étudiants, s´adresse à toutes celles et ceux qui cherchent à inventer de nouvelles formes politiques propres à réconcilier la citoyenneté de chacun avec les exigences collectives de toute vie sociale. Au service de cette pensée dont l´acuité est trop souvent noyée sous les lieux communs, Daniel Mesguich met un mélange de subtilité, de véhémence et de conviction qui rend enfin justice à l´analyste inspiré du Contrat social. 1.

´´To hold a pen is to be at war.´´ (Voltaire) ´´Virtue is a state of war, and to live in it means one always has some battle to wage against oneself.´´ (Rousseau) The grand narrative of the Enlightenment, usually recounted and understood in terms of progress and modernity, generally appears as a simplified evolution from the trappings of superstition, feudalism, and everything ´´irrational´´ to a world more similar to today´s world. Alongside the Renaissance, the Enlightenment is credited with the transition to an adherence to reason, secularism, and promotion of values such as the value of the individual, collective freedom, and liberty. At the heart of the movement in France was François-Marie Arouet, better known by the pen name Voltaire, whose voluminous writings advocated for greater liberalism, including freedom of religion and separation of church and state. In addition to the classic Candide, Voltaire was a biting polemic whose satirical attacks on the Catholic Church were among the fiercest of his day. He also understood the risks he was taking with these writings, at one point explaining, ´´It is dangerous to be right in matters where established men are wrong.´´ The Enlightenment is looked upon fondly, and it serves to reinforce the notion that the present is superior to the past, but things did not change as rapidly or as completely as many believe. In fact, some recent historians have challenged the belief that the Enlightenment was responsible for the French Revolution, which is a vital issue when it comes to Voltaire. After all, Voltaire, as both his contemporaries and most of his modern readers know him, is widely regarded as the pinnacle of Enlightenment thought, the symbol of the era of reason. 1.

At the age of 48, film critic David Denby returned to his alma mater, Columbia University, to re-experience the core humanities courses he had taken as a freshman 30 years before. Facing the question of what he really knows, Denby re-examines the besieged Western classics, ranging from Homer, Sappho, and Sophocles to Dante, Nietzsche, and Woolf. What relevance do the writers and thinkers of the past have to our current life? The answer surprised Denby and will surprise and enlighten his listeners. Great Books is a fascinating look at the crisis of literature in the late 20th century, mixing personal reflection, criticism, and the story of one man´s effort ´´to create a self.´´ 1.

Franz Musil alias Ueli Jäggi, ungestümer Privatdetektiv und Sohn der Familienbank Musil, stolpert in eine Geschichte, die ihm arg zusetzt. Zuerst macht ihm eine nackte Frauenleiche, die in einer Hotelsuite elegant auf Parkett drapiert wurde, schwer zu schaffen. Dann halten ihn dubiose Gestalten des Finanzplatzes Zürich auf Trab - und schliesslich nagen Zahnschmerzen, Liebeskummer und Bordellgeschichten so heftig an seinem Ego, dass es zum Verzweifeln ist. Aber damit noch nicht genug: Immer wieder stellt ihm sein Kontrahent von der Stadtpolizei - Kriminalkommissar Linder alias Mathias Gnädiger - das Bein oder reitet ihn in den Sumpf. Der mag es nämlich gar nicht, wenn ein unbedarfter Hobby-Schnüfler wie Musil sich in seinen Fall verirrt. 1. Sprache: Deutsch. Erzähler: Mathias Gnädiger, Ueli Jäggi.

Rousseau was one of the key figures of the Enlightenment, a period in history when all aspects of politics and human rights underwent dramatic reinterpretation. His discourse on inequality is one of his earliest works, an examination of the state of nature of mankind and the way in which society fell short of both its ideals and its potential. Rousseau was the most influential French writer of his age. His works gave rise to the ideals espoused during the French Revolution, and in no small part contributed to the American Revolution as well. Rousseau and his philosophical contemporaries, Thomas Hobbes and John Locke, were central to the dramatic re-envisioning of political theory that gave rise to the current era of democracy and republic. This work shows the developmental stages of his thought, shedding light on the struggle between individual will and the right of the privileged to rule. The narration of the full text is preceded by a summary, which includes a biography of the author, and an overview, synopsis, and analysis, as well as an examination of the historical context of the piece. This version of the work is ideal for students of philosophy and history, and a must-hear for any interested in how the current political and social climate arose. 1. Language: English.
