Jean-Jacques Rousseau (Ginebra, Suiza, 28 de junio de 1712-Ermenonville, Francia, 2 de julio de 1778) fue un polímata: escritor, filósofo, músico, botánico y naturalista franco-helvético definido como un ilustrado, a pesar de las profundas contradicciones que lo separaron de los principales representantes de la Ilustración. Las ideas políticas de Rousseau influyeron en gran medida en la Revolución francesa, el desarrollo de las teorías republicanas y el crecimiento del nacionalismo. Su herencia de pensador radical y revolucionario está probablemente mejor expresada en sus dos frases más célebres, una contenida en El contrato social, «El hombre nace libre, pero en todos lados está encadenado», la otra, presente en su Emilio, o De la educación, «El hombre es bueno por naturaleza», de ahí parte su idea de la posibilidad de la educación.

One of the towering figures of the Enlightenment was Jean Jacques Rousseau, whose works were essential to the ideological developments of the 18th century.  The prestige of French literature in the 18th century resides especially in its revolutionary character; while the writers of the previous century used to support the social order through their works and showed sympathy and even attempted to explain the political order of the time, in the 18th century, art, literature, philosophy and science all contribute actively and fiercely to the fight against the absolutist monarch and his regime. While this was a current manifesting all throughout Europe, there were differences in practice, especially between close countries (as was the case of England and France). Rousseau's life can best be described as a constant conflict, whether it was conflict with his wife, his employers, his colleagues and even his friends. However, such situations led to the birth of masterpieces which have been influencing the advancement of critical thinking up to the present day. The roots of his personality may be found in his childhood, as the death of his mother and the fleeing of his older brother left him with a father who impressed upon him the love for studying and reading but could not cover for the other needs of a child. Thus, the absence of a family would affect his later relations with people, and it would even compel Rousseau to abandon all his five children in an orphanage, an ironic fact given that he published a treaty on education.It’s quite likely that Rousseau realized the nature of the battles he fought. In fact, towards the end of his life, whether he was motivated by repentance or simply a need to advance his work, he provided his readers with explanations of all his actions and ideas. The “Confessions” were published after his death, and it is now considered by many to round his life’s work into a single opus.

LAPD Detective Peter Decker doesn’t know quite what to make of Lilah Brecht. The beautiful, eccentric spa owner and daughter of a faded Hollywood legend, Lilah was beaten, robbed, and raped in her own home—and claims to have psychic powers that enable her to see even more devastating events looming on the horizon. With his heart and mind on his pregnant young wife, Rina Lazarus, at home, Peter finds it hard to put much credence in the victim’s outrageous claims, or to become too deeply involved with her equally odd brothers and aging film star mom. But when Lilah’s dark visions turn frighteningly real, Decker’s world will be severely rocked—as the “false prophet’s” secrets and obsessions entrap the dedicated policeman . . . and point a killer toward Decker’s own vulnerable family.
