Description
The authors of Wittgenstein's Poker again find that the personal stories of philosophers—in this case the animosity between Enlightenment philosophers David Hume and Jean-Jacques Rousseau—is often as illuminating as their published thought. In 1766 Rousseau was on the run from intolerance, persecution, and enemies who decried him as a madman dangerous to society. Hume, almost universally lauded as a paragon of decency, offered Rousseau and his dog Sultan protection in England. Yet within months, the exile had accused Hume of plotting to dishonor him, while Hume, completely out of character, offered a violent response.
