The State of Nature in Rousseau’s Philosophy

(Original title: Konstruování přirozeného stavu v Rousseauově filosofii)
Filozofia, 73 (2018), 3, 191-200.
Type of work: Articles
Publication language: Czech

The paper examines Rousseau’s approach to the classical “state of nature” conception. Is Rousseau’s system coherent or not? For Rousseau, the state of nature seems to be a hypothetical abstract concept on one hand and a real state of intersubjective relationships within specific human communities on the other.
