Public Vision, Private Lives

Mark S. Cladis (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Provides a survey of Rousseau and the issues that pertain to the relation between the public and private life. Rousseau has presented many faces: the social theorist, ethicist, political and religious philosopher, pedagogue, novelist, literary critic, psychologist, musician, and botanist. These faces we will meet, these disciplines we must cross. Additionally, not only Rousseau but the topic – the relation between public and private – cuts across many diverse fields and issues: women studies, democratic theory, modern European history, social theory, philosophy of religion, reproductive rights, social justice, privacy laws, solitude, and community. Although the book is written for many, the principal audience are members of liberal democracies with interests in social theory, political philosophy, and philosophy of religion.

Keywords:   democracy, interest, liberalism, philosophy of religion, political philosophy, private, public, Rousseau, social theory
