Overview
In one of the first attempts at autobiography, Rousseau's Confessions not only retells the facts of the author's life, but reveals his innermost feelings and details the strengths and weaknesses of his character. Much more than a "behind-the-scenes look at the private life of a public man", Christopher Kelly writes, "the Confessions is at the center of Rousseau's philosophical enterprise".
