  1. N. J. H. Dent (2005). Rousseau. Routledge.
    Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712-1778) is one of the best-known figures of the French Enlightenment and a central figure in eighteenth-century philosophy. His influential theories of the social contract, inequality, liberty and education make him one of the most famous political philosophers of all time. In this superb introduction, Nicholas Dent covers the whole of Rousseau's thought. He gives particular attention to Rousseau's theories of democracy and freedom found in his most celebrated work, The Social Contract , and explains what Rousseau meant (...)

  5. N. J. H. Dent & Timothy O'Hagan (1999). Rousseau on "Amour-Propre". Proceedings of the Aristotelian Society 99:91 - 107.
    O'Hagan agrees with Dent that in Rousseau's idea of "amour-propre" we encounter a powerful, coherent model of human psychology, according to which individuals find their own identities by engaging in a network of relationships within a more or less reconstituted social order. He examines five ways in which people strive to attain that goal and five ways in which they characteristically fail. In the sixth section he discusses Rousseau's strategy of retreat from society, which is also a retreat from the (...)

  6. N. J. H. Dent (1998). Rousseau on Amour-Propre: N.J.H. Dent. Aristotelian Society Supplementary Volume 72 (1):57–74.
    According to familiar accounts, Rousseau held that humans are actuated by two distinct kinds of self love: amour de soi, a benign concern for one's self-preservation and well-being; and amour-propre, a malign concern to stand above other people, delighting in their despite. I argue that although amour-propre can (and often does) assume this malign form, this is not intrinsic to its character. The first and best rank among men that amour-propre directs us to claim for ourselves is that of occupying (...)

    Liberal critics of plato's republic criticise him for ignoring the moral autonomy of persons, their right to form and to express their own moral ideas. It is argued that this criticism is superficial. Neither plato, nor his liberal critics, wish all moral views to be held and acted on; they both wish to set limits to what is acceptable. The true source of disagreement is over the scope of reason in human affairs; plato understands that narrowly; his liberal critics in (...)

    This note discusses critically a point in a d m walker's paper "the ideal of sincerity" ("mind", October 1978). Walker claims that desires are insincere if corrupted by incompatible desires. This view accounts for some cases, But not for all. It is argued, In the note, That superficial, Factitious, 'got up' desires are judged insincere as such because not 'natural' to a man. This is implied by the claim of andre gide's which walker misinterprets. The issue of natural desires in (...)
