Maurice Quentin de la Tour (1704 – 88), portrait of Jean Jacques Rousseau (1712 – 78), pastel on paper, 1753. © Musee Antoine Lecuyer, Saint-Quentin, France / Giraudon / The Bridgeman Art Library knowledge — reason — was itself in question. ”46 Reason is unnatural, Rousseau insists, and the birth of reflection divorces us from our true nature. We come to see ourselves in the eyes of others and thus learn to substitute appearances for reality, hiding from others and ultimately from ourselves. While meditating upon his subject, Rousseau plunged into the woods — quite literally.

Rousseau acquiesced: his glacial regard was melting in the face of the relentlessly sunny man. Boswell last saw Rousseau on December 15, 1765, once again dining at Rousseau’s house. After fumbling about the kitchen pretending to help Thérèse make the soup, Boswell sat down with Rousseau and his gouvernante.

He begins with a portrait of natural man as a solitary animal devoid of reason and speech, a being whose limited needs can be easily satisfied without depending upon anyone, whose soul is restricted to the sole sentiment of his own existence without any idea of the future, as near as it may be.
