"Gauthier's reading of Rousseau's works, especially in terms of the key ideas of dependence and freedom, is, in many places , highly illuminating and does begin to bring to light the structures of an underlying unity." - Ann Hartle, Emory University "a provocative essay on Rousseau from a noted scholar of Hobbes and one that will be of interest to scholars and students alike." - Rebecca Kingston, University of Toronto "The conversation Gauthier assembles is impressive...Gauthier's presentation of the fabric of writing that makes up Rousseau's work accurately reflects its dialectical patterning and reveals some unexpected threads among its connected strands." Zev M. Trachtenberg, University of Oklahoma, Ethics
