First published posthumously in 1782 from an unfinished manuscript, The Reveries of the Solitary Walker continues Rousseau's exploration of the soul in the form of a final meditation on self-understanding and isolation. This accurate and graceful translation by Charles Butterworth--the only English version based on Rousseau's original text--is accompanied by an interpretive essay, extensive notes, and a comprehensive index.
. . . a scholarly English translation of high quality . . . prepared by a translator thoroughly grounded both in the tradition of Western philosophy and in the thought of Rousseau. -- Review of Metaphysics
