Rousseau's "Emile," An Anti-Utopia.
Rosenow, Eliyah
British Journal of Educational Studies, v28 n3 p212-24 Oct 1980
The author argues that, in "Emile," Rousseau does not present an educational system which glorifies the individual, but one which actively suppresses individuality in order to create perfect citizens for Rousseau's perfect society. He compares and contrasts Rousseau's educational design to that of B. F. Skinner. (SJL)
