Should people of Geneva establish a theatre? What consequences could it have? Is theatre morally bad? And what about actors? What virtues or vices could they bring to a lovely city of Geneva?

This letter offers to reader an interesting dispute between Rousseau and D´Alembert. I think, the book has a lot to offer to contemporary reader, because, well, today, we don´t think very much about things as Rousseau did. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0801490715, Paperback)

This excellent translation makes available a classic work central to one of the most interesting controversies of the eighteenth century: the quarrel between Rousseau and Voltaire. Besides containing some of the most sensitive literary criticism ever written (especially of Molière), the book is an excellent introduction to the principles of classical political thought. It demonstrates the paradoxes of Rousseau's though and clearly displays the temperament that led him to repudiate the hopes of the Enlightenment.
