[The Bangi Street Libary (motto below), in cooperation with the Open Youth University, is organizing a lecture on Western Political Philosophy and Jean-Jacque Rousseau, presented by Siti Fatimah Zaini. All are invited for a relaxed discussion.

Jean-Jacques Rousseau was one of the most influential thinkers during the Enlightenment in eighteenth century Europe. His first major philosophical work, A Discourse on the Sciences and Arts, was the winning response to an essay contest.

In this work, Rousseau argues that the progression of the sciences and arts has caused the corruption of virtue and morality. This discourse won Rousseau fame and recognition, and it laid much of the philosophical groundwork for a second, longer work, The Discourse on the Origin of Inequality.

The second discourse, like the first, was widely read and further solidified Rousseau’s place as a significant intellectual figure. The central claim of the work is that human beings are basically good by nature, but were corrupted by the complex historical events that resulted in present day civil society.]
