Pageturners: Classics

When

Pageturners

Engage in stimulating conversation about the classics, exchange perspectives about characters and plot, and get to know your neighbors.

Read The Social Contract by Jean-Jacques Rousseau. Rejecting the view that anyone has a natural right to wield authority over others, Rousseau argues instead for a pact, or “social contract,” that should exist between all the citizens of a state and that should be the source of sovereign power. To some his view of society is a blueprint for totalitarianism, while others deem it a declaration of democratic principles.
