He believed that man, in his natural, primitive state,
without being civilized, is harmless and good. When man is surrounded by nature
he develops feelings: love, sincerity, simplicity and sympathy for his
companions. Rousseau fled from the city when he was sixteen years of age and
took refuge under the patronage of a Roman Catholic noblewoman,
Francoise-Louise de la Tour, Baroone de Warens. Through her influence, Rousseau
converted into Roman Catholic in April 1728.

Rousseau published many works such as “Emile” and “The
Social Contract”. This marked the high
point of Rousseau’s intellectual achievement. Sadly,
for Rousseau, these publication of “Emile” and “The Social Contract” led to
personal disaster. The book “Emilie” was condemned in Paris,
while in Geneva
both “Emile” and “The Social Contract” were censured due to religious
heterodoxy.

Rousseau died through a stroke on the 2nd July 1778 at
the age of sixty-six in Ermenonville,
France..

During his lifetime, his ideologies were little read
and poorly understood, but during the French revolution in 1789, Rousseau was
the most famous of the philosophers among the members of the Jacobin club lead
by Robespierre. Sixteen years after his death, Rousseau was interred as a
national hero in Paris,
in 1794. (Bertram, 2017)
