This study is an analysis of Rousseau's relationship to his reader in the major works from Discours sur les sciences et les arts to Reveries du promeneur solitaire. In addition to specialists, the volume will be of interest to a broad audience directly acquainted with the major works and should stimulate further discussion of the general subject of writer-reader relationships in literature.
