Description

Jean-Jacques Rousseau was a Genevan philosopher of the 18th century, whose works influenced the Enlightenment across Europe, changing the development of modern political and educational thought. His 'Confessions', setting the groundwork for the modern autobiography, inspired the late eighteenth century movement of the Age of Sensibility, favouring an increased focus on subjectivity and introspection.
