A strikingly original inquiry into politics and human nature, the "Discourse "presents a theoretical view of people in a pre-social condition and the ensuing effects of civilization. The author develops a theory of evolution that prefigures Darwinism and encompasses aspects of ethics, sociology, and epistemology. One of the most influential works of the Enlightenment.
