Description

The importance of Rousseau, and his role in history, cannot be under estimated. It is best illustrated by Durant's paragraph-long question about Rousseau and his contribution to history. Durant asks, on the opening page of his tenth volume of his "Story of Civilization" the following questions:

"How did it come about that a man born poor, losing his mother at birth and soon deserted by his father, afflicted with a painful and humiliating disease, left to wander for twelve years among alien cities and conflicting faiths, repudiated by society and civilization, repudiating Voltaire, Diderot, the "Encyclopedie," and the "Age of Reason," driven from place to place as a dangerous rebel, suspected of crime and insanity, and seeing, in his last months, the apotheosis of his greatest enemy -- how did it come about that this man, after his death, triumphed over Voltaire, revived religion, transformed education, elevated  the morals of France, inspired the Romantic movement and the French Revolution, influenced the philosophy of Kant and Schopenhauer, the plays of Schiller, the novels of Goethe, the poems of Wordsworth, Byron, and Shelley, the socialism of Marx, the ethics of Tolstoi, and, altogether, had more effect upon posterity  than any other writer or thinker of that eighteenth century in which writers were more influential than they had ever been before? Here, if anywhere, the problem faces us: what is the role of genius in history, of man versus the mass and the state?"
