And so Rousseau got here to England along with his liked puppy, Sultan, and willingly took safe haven together with his extra revered counterpart. yet inside of months, the exile was once loudly accusing his benefactor of plotting to dishonor him—which caused a such a lot uncharacteristically violent reaction from Hume. And so all started a notable confrontation and activities that ensnared the various best figures in British and French society, and have become the controversy of highbrow Europe.

Rousseau's puppy is the interesting precise tale of the sour and extremely public quarrel that became the Age of Enlightenment's such a lot influential thinkers into deadliest of foes—a so much human story of compassion, treachery, anger, and revenge; of famous person and its rate; of shameless spin; of destroyed reputations and shattered friendships.


In 1766, Scottish thinker David Hume helped the unconventional Swiss highbrow Jean-Jacques Rousseau locate asylum in England; a couple of months later, the unstable thinker accused his benefactor of masterminding a murky conspiracy opposed to him and caused a virulent reaction. The argument had not anything to do with philosophy (or Rousseau's dog), yet, as of their well-received Wittgenstein's Poker, the authors use the dispute as a pretext for a fascinating rundown of the 2 thinkers' nice ideas—with an incredible swig of human curiosity to clean down the philosophical morsels. Their (sometimes excessively) particular, meandering account of the feud issues to anything better: the distinction among the affable, urbane rationalist Hume and the moody, paranoid, emotionally overwrought Rousseau prefigures, they think, the shift from the Enlightenment cult of cause to the Romantic cult of feeling. The authors widen their bright photographs of the antagonists right into a landscape of the cross-Channel highbrow neighborhood that refereed the squabble, taking within the ancien régime salons and their superb hostesses and the London and Paris streets the place vacationing philosophers have been mobbed like rock stars. the result's an soaking up cultural background of the republic of letters in its exuberant adolescence.
