Jean Jacques Rousseau, from Emile

  • Rousseau is sometimes called an Epicurean, and seldom more-so than by his contemporary critics.

    Here is a quote from one of the "Fragments to Emile";

    This passage was edited according to the footnote, where an earlier edition had the sentence "Every consistent Epicurean is necessarily a Stoic."

    I actually don't know anything about this book or these "Fragments", so take it with a grain of salt.
