Rousseau's Dog: A Tale of Two Philosophers

De (autor): David Edmonds, John Eidinow

(1 reviews)
From the bestselling authors of Wittgenstein's Poker, the quarrel that shocked the world of Enlightenment.
 
Jean-Jacques Rousseau - philosopher, novelist, composer, educationist, political provocateur - was on the run. He was fleeing intolerance, persecution, and enemies who proclaimed him a madman, dangerous to society. David Hume, the foremost philosopher in the English language, universally praised as a model of decency, came to his aid. He brought Rousseau and his beloved little dog Sultan to England. And then it all went horribly wrong.
 
In Rousseau's Dog, David Edmonds and John Eidinow bring their narrative verve to the bitter quarrel that turned these two Enlightenment giants into mortal foes. The result is a story of celebrity and its price, of shameless spin, of destroyed reputations and shattered friendships. It is a story of two men whose writings would forever shape our world, but whose personalities and ideas could scarcely have had less in common. And it is a very human story of compassion, treachery, anger and revenge.

Foarte interesanta. Cred ca autorii au facut o treaba foarte buna cu descrierea personalitatii celor 2, Rousseau si Hume. Mi-a placut ca pe langa atentia acordata biografiei si personalitatii actorilor principali, autorii reusesc sa surprinda spiritului secolului 18, cu saloanele pariziene, lupta dintre ratiune si credinta si disputele intelectuale care aveau loc in ziare, publicatii si in scrisori.
