    In the nineteenth century, men continued to appeal to Rousseau, without, as a rule, knowing him well or penetrating deeply into his meaning. "The Social Contract," says M. Dreyfus-Brisac, "is the book of all books that is most talked of and least read." But with the great revival of interest in political philosophy there has come a desire for. the modern Romantic ideal. It was an ideal that came to full political blossom in France about twenty years after Rousseau’s death in a riot of abstract reasoning during the French Revolution, by which time he had already been canonized as the high priest of democracy. What is of interest is the profound connection between this Eighteenth century.
