Caption: Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712-1778). 186 illustration of the Swiss-French philosopher and author Jean-Jacques Rousseau holding a plant. Rousseau was also a botanist, political theorist and musician. In 1742 he moved to Paris where he began his distinguished career as a philosophical writer. He argued the moral superiority of the primitive state over the civilised state. His works, which included 'On The Social Contract' (1762, held in hand), supported the will of the masses over the divine right of Kings. This anticipated the French Revolution. He studied botany as a leisure pursuit.
