Emile, ou De l'éducation - by Jean-Jacques Rousseau[Reading report] by Kenza Iraqi

2010-09-01

The author graduated from ESCP Europe and was part of the “Alternative Management” third year program in HEC in 2010.

Through an imaginary character, Emile, Rousseau explains its theories on education. His educational project consists in respecting the natural evolution of the person, its physical, intellectual and moral development to make of him a natural man able to live in society. More than a treatise on education, it is a treatise about human kind.
