So apparently I am getting a bit of a wrap of hating philosophy. And although Hobbes just insulted me to the very core, it isn’t ALL philosophy, just him.
Rousseau on the other hand, I thought was fantastic.His points were clear, it was evident what he was discussing and he wrote well. He used imagery, symbolism, examples, metaphors. he wrote to attract an audience. I found myself highlighting quotes and really diving deep into the text.
I know he was quite a few years after Hobbes, but the writing quality was so much higher.
His personal life was also so scandalous and epic that I was drawn into his writing by that alone.
Therefore, in conclusion, Ergo, Hence…I don’t have all philosophy
