Considerations around Rousseau's political pedagogical project

Wilson Alves de Paiva About the author


Although Rousseau's work has been the subject of a rich intellectual production for almost two and a half centuries of its existence, it has continually been object of wrong interpretations and partial readings. In order to contribute to that discussion, particularly with regard to the man formation, this paper is intended to discuss the process in which the natural man becomes the civilian, defending the point of view that this is a development of reason, properly guided by the principles of nature and focused on an authentic human development, reaching the two objectives: human and political formation. That means a fully realization only in the dual role, or better, in a composed condition of natural and civilian man.
