Sintesi dell'editore

In the great ferment of the French Revolution, Voltaire and Rousseau stood out as intellectual giants. Voltaire's incisive wit and commitment to translucent reason stands in sharp contrast to Rousseau's earnest convictions and attention to emotion. Both thinkers produced work of enduring value in morality and political philosophy.

The World of Philosophy series presents the questions, interests, and worldviews of the world's great philosophers and philosophical traditions. Special emphasis on clear and relevant explanations, in understandable language, give you a new arsenal of insights toward living a better life.

superficial & annoyingly read

The author's presentation is superficial to the point of being faulty. He gives us a ton of quotes, and particularly from Voltaire's letters on England are good. His commentary adds nothing and reduces much.

The main reader is excellent. However, all the quotes are read by somebody else with mock German, French, Scotch and whatever accents. It is particularly annoying that the mock accent by which Voltaire is represented sounds like Dracula, since the book is full of Voltaire quotes.

You'll be much better off reading Voltaire's Letters on England and Rousseau's Social Contract instead.

Worth reading

It’s an excellent short book on Voltaire and Rousseau. Have the character voices to help tell the voices was incredible. Lynn Redgrave was an outstanding narrator too.

should be required study for all students

Very valuable lessons to help understand the now failing government. I have listened to this now.
