With an Introduction by Derek MatraversIn The Social Contract of Rousseau (1712-1778) argues for the preservation of individual freedom in political societyAn individual cannot be free under the law, he says, by voluntarily embracing this law as his own.Thus, to be free in society requires everyone to enslave our desires for the benefit of all and the general will of all.Some saw this as a promise of an equal relationship between society and the individual, while others saw it as nothing less than a blueprint for totalitarianism.The Social Contract is not only one of the great defences of civil society, it is also unwavering in its study of the dark side of political systems.
