The political-legal doctrine of Rousseau

His social and political and legal views are set out in these works, as: "A Discourse on the issue: Whether the revival of Arts and Sciences purification of morals? "(1750)," Discourse on the origin and cause of Inequality among Men (1754), "On the Political Economy (1755), "Judgement of perpetual peace" (first published after his death in 1782), 'On Social Contract, or Principles of political right "(1762). The problems of society, state and law covered in the teaching of Rousseau from the standpoint justify and defend the principle and ideas of popular sovereignty. Common at the time of submission of the natural state of Rousseau used as a hypothesis to present their largely new views on the whole process of formation and development of spiritual, social, and political-legal life of mankind.

In its natural state, according to Rousseau, there is no private property, free and equal. Inequality is at first only the physical due to natural different people. But with the advent of private property and social inequality, in contradiction to the natural equality, the fight begins between rich and poor. Following the destruction of equality followed by According to Rousseau, "terribly embarrassed, unjust seizure of the rich, robbery poor "," constant collision is right with the law who came first ". Describing this predgosudarstvennoe state, Rousseau wrote: "Nascent society has come to the state's worst war: the human race is mired in vice and despair, no longer able to either return back or abandon the ill-fated acquisitions, they made ".

Leaving such an environment, inspired by "ingenious" argument of the rich and however, due to the vital interests of all, was in agreement establishment of state authority and laws, which would be subject to all. However, having lost their natural freedom, the poor did not attain the freedom political. Created by the treaty and the laws of the state "have imposed new shackles on the weak and gave new strength to the rich, irretrievably destroyed natural freedom, forever established law of property and inequality, turned clever usurpation into an inalienable right and for the benefit of several ambitious doomed since the entire human race to labor, slavery and poverty ".

Inequality of private property, complemented by political inequality, led, according to Rousseau, in the end to absolute inequality in despotism, when in relation to the despot are all equal in their slavery and injustice.
