Rousseau’s work is united around the intention to provide a diagnosis and a therapy for the modern age that encompasses three emancipatory projects: pedagogical, political, and naturalistic. The author considers Rousseau’s central, political emancipatory project and analyses its particular social contract from the aspect of: 1. methodical assumptions; 2. aims, conditions, and methods of implementation; 3. transformative effects and extensions of personal identity. Rousseau justifies political authority in three ways, which gives reasons for his political project of freedom to be called liberal, moral, and participatory republicanism. The radical nature of Rousseau’s critique, in at least seven ways, discloses the essence of our contemporary age.
