“The best team not only used secondary research well, but they acknowledged the library directly as a key input to their success thus far.”

Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and hosted by UBC Arts One. Philosopher, novelist, playwright and composer, Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712 — 1778) became a leading figure of the Enlightenment as one of its sharpest critics. His Discourse on the Origin and the Foundations of Inequality Among Men (1755)—a trenchant analysis of the political, moral and psychological hazards of civil society, and of the alienation of the modern self captivated Rousseau’s contemporaries, and remains compelling to this day.
