The class discussion on Jean-Jacques Rousseau seems to have been far more active than the discussion on Hobbes. Personally, I believe this observation can be explained in that the excerpts selected offered concepts more easily understood. Although this paper will include notes taken in class from Discourse on the Origin of Social Inequality, The Social Contract, and Faith of a Savoyard Priest, I chose to read the first selection from the list. Although the class never really came to a consensus about the point of these articles, a few main points do seem to exist.
- Celebrity as Hyperreality: Princess Diana and Her Dresses
- Comparison of Portuguese "Festa de São João" and Latvian "Jāņi"
- Jean-Jacques Rousseau
