hi
rousseau's beleives that man is good by nature. do you disagree and agree?

i said disagree because i beleive that man is a creature of thought and the concepts of good and evil will be regardless because people can twist others into thinking in ay way they want.

i want to raise my hand in class tomorrow so is this good. does it even make sense.

what do you think about rousseau? Agree or disagree


I don't know whether to agree or disagree since it's been a while since I've read Rousseau. About the only thing I can recall is his quote "Man is born free and is everywhere in chains." I think that's from the Social Contract. I think one of his other famous quotes is to the affect 'man is the noble savage'. I'm not positive about the second quote.
I also know he's a political philosopher, so I doubt his beliefs about human nature can be summed up in one sentence. I see there are online versions of his Social Contract so you should have no trouble finding summaries of it with a google search.
My only real advice here is not to raise your hand unless you know more than just a quote or two.
