Spinozalens, een onderscheiding voor 
denkers over ethiek

Jean-Jacques Rousseau

'departed thinker' 1712 - 1778

Jean-Jacques Rousseau was selected within the theme ‘democratie in opspraak’ (‘compromised democracy’). This French philosopher’s thoughts about a state that is structured to take care of its people without taking away their freedom, constituted a new movement. Rousseau’s legacy forms the basis for a discussion about democracy. We created an educational introduction for secondary and higher education, which can be ordered by schools from the Internationale Spinozaprijs Foundation free of charge. Others interested in this content may download it under the ‘Activities’ tab.
