Department: Philosophy

Abstract: Rousseau poses a problem: how can a nation join together in cooperative action while preserving the freedom of each citizen? His answer is the general will, which promotes the common good while providing “moral liberty” to the citizens. My thesis evaluates three possible interpretations of the general will.
