      Introduction. In any discussion of American origins, Benjamin Franklin is a good man to begin with. Years before the United States existed, he started things that his countrymen continue to be proud of -- libraries, civic clubs, volunteer fire departments, effective street lighting, and efficient heating devices/5(). The Kabir Book in contrast, has a small number of very short poems. Each poem can be scanned in seconds, but each one addresses something that stops you dead in your tracks. In each poem, the poet points to something, often with sensuous imagery, As a quick aside here, one of my favorite poets is Whitman/5.

Huizinga, son of the Johan Huizinga who wrote The Waning of the Middle Ages, writes of Rousseau with an elegant rancor which suggests that to debunk the noxious Jean-Jacques has been his dearest wish since infancy.

Indeed, the man invites this treatment: maudlin, treacherous, egomaniacal, churlish, pompous, inconsistent, intellectually sloppy, and supremely convinced.

Rousseau was a self-made man. Although his mother died in childbirth and his father, an unsuccessful watchmaker, abandoned him at age twelve, young Jean-Jacques acquired a vast knowledge of West-ern philosophy through his own readings.

His first books—the Discourse on the Sciences. Moving in western culture from the ancient and medieval periods into the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, we approach modernity. The discovery of the new world, developments in commerce and industry, the Reformation, the scientific revolution, and the rise of the secular alongside the decline of Christianity transformed western civilization.

Augustine represents human nature as bad, “fallen.” Rousseau’s “revelation of man” owes nothing to divinity. It is a natural “revelation,” the work of a philosopher, not a saint.

Godlike, he writes his own book or ‘Bible,’ revealing himself. As a philosopher, Rousseau finds Socrates’ life the most relevant parallel to his own.

That winter, through the insistence of physiocrats such as the Turgot brothers, Crèvecoeur visited Paris and began taking part in the salon of the Countess d’Houdetot, best known for having been an intimate friend of Jean-Jacques Rousseau (and made famous by Rousseau’s description of their love affair in Les Confessions).Cited by: 4.

Here are some insights from an exceptionally good biography of Jean-Jacques Rousseau, entitled Rousseau–The Self Made Saint by J. Huizinga (New York, Grossman Publishers, ). Rousseau is undeniably an important figure in the West.

To this day he is probably the most influential shaper of Western pedagogy and teaching methods. Michel Guillaume Jean de Crèvecœur (French pronunciation: [miʃɛl ɡijom ʒɑ̃ də kʁɛvkœʁ]; Decem – Novem ), naturalized in New York as John Hector St.

Rousseau and Revolution, the 10th volume of the Story of Civilization, ranges over a Europe in ferment, but centers on the passionate rebel-philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau, the great exponent of the romantic impulse toward self-exploration and social revolt, who contended with the great rationalist Voltaire for the mind of Europe.
