THE ORPHANAGE WILL RAISE MY CHILDREN TO BE GOOD CITIZENS AND TRAIN THEM IN ONE OF THE MANUAL TRADES. Although he invented several other ingenious and unconvincing excuses for his unnatural behaviour, Rousseau eventually admitted that he could never forgive himself for abandoning them, a feeling that his readers usually share. The “Philosophes” and the Enlightenment The intellectual friends that Rousseau met in Paris were known as the “Philosophes”, although they were more like social critics than true philosophers.

The Second Discourse marks Rousseau out as a true philosopher rather than a mere “essayist”. It is sometimes difficult to follow because Rousseau kidnaps words like “natural” and “freedom” and assigns his own meanings to them. It can also be puzzling because it is a series of arguments with other political philosophers like Grotius, Locke and Hobbes. What Is Human Nature? A hypothesis about human nature is usually an unavoidable part of any political theory. Societies are made of human beings, so it seems sensible enough to start by investigating the material they are made of.

Sometimes he gives it the more recent meaning of “the countryside” or, more profoundly, “the ordered universe that is created and designed by God”. But at other times its meaning seems wholly subjective and signifies merely “that of which Rousseau approves”. Natural Humans According to Rousseau, man’s original nature was “good”, but has since been corrupted by artificial society. This means that inside each modern man lies the vestiges of an earlier, better self. But it is impossible to describe what original “natural men” were like.
