Rousseau delivers this discourse as a progression of logical thought: the development of society preceded the principles that were implemented to facilitate the governance of society. In Rousseau's discourse, the need to own land and to accord power and status to those who owned land, developed into organized society, with the values placed upon resources according to politics and status. The manufactured order of society stood in contrast to the natural desire of man to be free; therefore anything that society placed in the way of that freedom was against natural law. The inherent law that is inside man from birth clashes with the organized law on man; thus producing inequality, and injustice.
Rousseau's logic is almost poetic in its precision and accuracy.

This is beautifully written work of philosophical thought that will no doubt always remain as a classic among the great thinkers.

It's a very well written translation of Rousseau of an interesting, concise philosophy for the reasons for social inequity. Some of the issues he raises are still current today, in a new context. What stuck out for me was his assumption people would always make rational decisions, when capable of making a decision, which concerns their own interests. I'm not sure if that's always true, nor has it been in my own experience. However, this essay is a very optimistic, hopeful outlook on the way society could work, as well as an intelligent analysis of what doesn't work. Altogether, an interesting read.

I could almost copy my review of The Social Contract by the same author, as I also read this as part of research on a project covering the period between the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution and it would be pretty spot on.

The fact that our nation was founded on the principals of equality and justice can be debated all day. The words written vs. the actions taken, etc., but Rousseau does a nice job of going deeper into natural, political, social, economic and intellectual inequalities that both exist and are created in an experiment such as the United States.

I enjoyed it for its historical context, but I can see why they never made the movie.

As is expected of older philosophical works, this is a dry read but still good and worth the time. I intend to follow up my reading by listening to an audiobook version, as I sometimes get more out of this type of work when listening to it externally. My inner voice doesn’t always get the right cadence or delivery.

Anyone who is interested in social order must read this book - although written 260 years ago, it still provides remarkably fresh insight into the evolution of human society. Rousseau was not right in all of his assumptions and conclusions yet he is pretty close to being right in the major points - at least based on current research.

The quality of the Kindle presentation for this free edition suffers from the same issue that most do, there are odd gaps and leaps in text that occasionally make the reading a bit jumpy.

As for Rousseau's commentary, it is amazing to see that despite the distance in time from its original creation by the author, his thoughts remain accurate today. Man's focus on perfection continues to lead further from perfection. The inherent jealousy and competition that "perfection" engenders lead us further apart instead of improving our shared experience.
