The acclaimed series The Collected Writings of Jean-Jacques Rousseau concludes with a volume centering on Emile (1762), which Rousseau called his “greatest and best book.” Here Rousseau enters into critical engagement with thinkers such as Locke and Plato, giving his most comprehensive account of the relation between happiness and citizenship, teachers and students, and men and women. In this volume Christopher Kelly presents Allan Bloom’s translation, newly edited and cross-referenced to match the series.

Rousseau wrote about the difficulty of being a good individual within an inherently corrupting collectivity: society. Emile deals specifically with education, and outlines a system which would allow for human goodness. He uses the fictional story of Emile and his tutor to outline his ideas. The book was banned and publicly burned on its publication, but became a European bestseller and provided a basis for new education systems.

Ab 1763 verfasste Rousseau eine ganze Reihe kürzerer und längerer autobiografischer Texte, darunter seine 1765-1770 geschriebenen, später berühmt gewordenen Confessions (Bekenntnisse), die erst postum publiziert wurden. Darin schildert er auch intime Details aus seinem Leben und auch eigene Verfehlungen. Vor allem diese Schrift begründete die Untergattung der "selbstentblößenden" Autobiografie. Den Titel wählte der Philosoph in Anlehnung an den der “Confessiones” des Augustinus von Hippo.

émile, or On Education is a treatise on the nature of education and on the nature of man written by Jean-Jacques Rousseau, who considered it to be the "best and most important of all my writings." Due to a section of the book entitled "Profession of Faith of the Savoyard Vicar," émile was banned in Paris and Geneva and was publicly burned in 1762. During the French Revolution, émile served as the inspiration for what became a new national system of education.

Die erste Ausgabe dieser Schrift erschien 1914 in englischer Sprache unter dem Titel "Dr. Montessoris Own Handbook". Darin betont Maria Montessori in einer Vorbemerkung, dass diese Schrift das einzige authentische und von ihr autorisierte Handbuch der Montessori-Methode sei. Ziel des Buches ist eine knappe für die Umsetzung in die Praxis geeignete Darstellung ihrer pädagogischen Konzeption. Breiten Raum nimmt daher die Praxis der Montessori-Pädagogik mit ihren Übungen und Materialien ein. Eine deutsche Übersetzung dieser Schrift erschien 1922 und erneut als zweite umgearbeitete Auflage 1928 unter dem Titel "Mein Handbuch – Grundsätze und Anwendung meiner neuen Methode der Selbsterziehung der Kinder".

The Confessions was two distinct works, each part consisting of six books. Books I to VI were written between 1765 and 1767 and published in 1782, while books VII to XII were written in 1769–1770 and published in 1789.[citation needed] Rousseau alludes to a planned third part, but this was never completed. Though the book contains factual inaccuracies—in particular, Rousseau's dates are frequently off, some events are out of order, and others are misrepresented, incomplete, incorrect—Rousseau provides an account of the experiences that shaped his personality and ideas. For instance, some parts of his own education are clearly present in his account of ideal education, Emile, or On Education. Rousseau's work is notable as one of the first major autobiographies. Prior to the Confessions, the two great autobiographies were Augustine's own Confessions and Saint Teresa's Life of Herself. However, both of these works focused on the religious experiences of their authors; the Confessions was one of the first autobiographies in which an individual wrote of his own life mainly in terms of his worldly experiences and personal feelings. Rousseau recognized the unique nature of his work; it opens with the famous words: "I have resolved on an enterprise which has no precedent and which, once complete, will have no imitator. My purpose is to display to my kind a portrait in every way true to nature, and the man I shall portray will be myself." His example was soon followed: not long after publication, many other writers (such as Goethe, Wordsworth, Stendhal, and De Quincey) wrote their own similarly-styled autobiographies. The Confessions is also noted for its detailed account of Rousseau's more humiliating and shameful moments. For instance, Rousseau recounts an incident when, while a servant, he covered up his theft of a ribbon by framing a young girl—who was working in the house—for the crime. In addition, Rousseau explains the manner in which he disposes of the five children he had with Thérèse Levasseur.
