A superb first edition of Émile ou De l'éducation, which is a classic of educational theory, Émile is also, as Rousseau himself points out, a philosophical treatise on the goodness of human nature, a treatise first published in 1762.
It remains, even today, one of the most widely read and popular works on the topic, so much so that in Japan, the authority on child development requires all kindergarten teachers to read it.
The first four books describe the ideal upbringing of a fictional young boy, Emile, and are arranged chronologically, addressing, step by step, the educational issues that emerge as he grows up.
The last book deals with "education", or rather the lack of education of girls with another fictional example: Sophie, raised and educated to be Emile's wife.
