Jean Jacques Rousseau (1712–1778).  Social Contract & Discourses.  1913.
The Social Contract or Principles of Political Right
                Fœderis æquas
Dicamus leges. (Vergil, Æneid XI.)

THIS little treatise is part of a longer work which I began years ago without realising my limitations, and long since abandoned. Of the various fragments that might have been extracted from what I wrote, this is the most considerable, and, I think, the least unworthy of being offered to the public. The rest no longer exists.
