Of intellectual EuropeRousseau's Dog is the fascinating true story of the bitter and very public uarrel that turned the Age of Enlightenment's two most influential thinkers into deadliest of foes a most human tale of compassion treachery anger and revenge; of celebrity and its price; of shameless spin; of destroyed reputations and shattered friendshi. What I've learned of philosophy was removed from history so I never realized before picking up this book that David Hume and Jean Jacues Rousseau were contemporaries let alone that they had a very public feud The book wasn't what I expected okay to be honest I expected an episode of the odd couple in which one of the protagonists denies causality But what I received instead was a well written painstakingly researched history with a solid thesis The authors occasionally step aside from the action and talk about the very different philosophies and personalities of our philosophers in order to explain how a childish feud could erupt between two very enlightened men The book is slow in the beginning and I actually set it aside for about a month but it has a good payoff and I intend to pick up another book by Edmonds and Eidinow Wittgenstein's PokerOh and I was also expecting the book to talk about Rousseau's dog Sultan They tie him into the conclusion but still Cowboy Smith revenge; of celebrity and its price; of shameless spin; of destroyed Cries in the Night reputations and shattered friendshi.

I don't want to give any of the pleasures of this book away but it is a PERFECT example of Twain's dictum that people NEVER change It's the enlightenment and the players are Hume and Rousseau but what a disaster Not much enlightenment here Just a great example of smart people behaving just like the rest of us or in Rousseau's case far worse This Edmond's fellow is on to something and WITTGENSTEIN'S POKER just got jumped to near the front of the ueue You would NOT want to read two books like this back to back as you would give up on humanity as having any hope of going forward Barney Dannelke
