By Jean Starobinski

'Rousseau procéda à los angeles manière des prédicateurs. Il accusa le mal, pour mieux annoncer le remède. C'est l'indignation de los angeles vertu, assure-t-il, qui marqua le début de sa vocation philosophique, lorsqu'un concours d'académie souleva los angeles query des conséquences du rétablissement des sciences et des arts, c'est-à-dire de l. a. Renaissance. Son indignation, son ressentiment ont alors fait naître en lui une éloquence dont il ignorait encore tout le pouvoir.

Il a jugé nécessaire de remonter aux premiers temps de l'histoire humaine, et le modèle qu'il en a proposé lui a valu d'être considéré comme l'un des fondateurs de l'anthropologie. Il parvint à loger dans son roman los angeles Nouvelle Héloïse tout à l. a. fois un lieu où vivre et des voyages couvrant l. a. terre entière. Certains de ses lecteurs furent séduits au element de vouloir tout quitter pour vivre à ses côtés, comme s'il avait fondé un ordre religieux. Ce singulier attrait s'exerce encore.'
Jean Starobinski.

D. 88; Fin. 6; Tusc. 5 (Edelstein and Kidd 1972: T29). 14 On Seneca’s philosophical contemporaries see Sellars 2014. Another Stoic of this period worth noting is Chaeremon who, like Seneca, is said to have been one of Nero’s tutors (although Seneca does not mention him). See further Horst 1984. 15 The ancient biography of Persius (attributed to Suetonius but now credited to Valerius Probus) reports that in his will Persius left around 700 volumes of Chrysippus to Cornutus.

Second (fr. 4 Hense), Musonius does not insist on an absolute division of labor between men and women. Although he notes that certain tasks appear to be more suited to men than to women because of differences in physical strength, Musonius is also willing to entertain the possibility that all human tasks constitute a common obligation and that sometimes roles can be switched. The cluster of texts about marriage (fr. 13a–b, and 14) shows that Musonius posited an ideal marriage as a reciprocal relation between equals, based on virtue and genuine mutual affection.
