[en] Notwithstanding the general accepted understanding that Rousseau is the master of modern education reflecting the progress by enlightenment this this articles suggests that Rousseau’s Emile is – as most of Rousseau’s other writings are, too – testimony to a brilliant and passionate writer expressing thoughts about his concern how to deal with passions – passion being one of the most disputed concepts in late seventeenth and in eighteenth century. The reading of Emile has therefore take into account polemic as a literary trope in Rousseau’s style of writing.
