The Confessions of J. J. Rousseau — Volume 07
The stages below are those associated with males. Stage 1: Infancy birth to two years. The first stage is infancy, from birth to about two years. Book I. Infancy finishes with the weaning of the child. The only habit the child should be allowed to acquire is to contract none… Prepare in good time form the reign of freedom and the exercise of his powers, by allowing his body its natural habits and accustoming him always to be his own master and follow the dictates of his will as soon as he has a will of his own.
The purpose of education at this stage is to develop physical qualities and particularly senses, but not minds. Stage 3: Pre-adolescence The urge for activity now takes a mental form; there is greater capacity for sustained attention Boyd The educator has to respond accordingly. Our real teachers are experience and emotion, and man will never learn what befits a man except under its own conditions.
My whole book is one continued argument in support of this fundamental principle of education. Everyman edn: ; Boyd: Stage 4: Puberty There is to be a gradual entry into community life Boyd Stage 5: Adulthood He learns about love, and is ready to return to society, proof, Rousseau hopes, after such a lengthy preparation, against its corrupting influences.
This last book includes a substantial section concerning the education of woman.

After the age of ten there is a concern with adornment and the arts of pleasing; religion; and the training of reason. Rousseau then goes on to sum her qualities as a result of this schooling Yet Rousseau can be presented at the same time as deeply individualist, and as controlling and pandering to popularist totalitarianism.
In psychology he looked to stage theory and essentialist notions concerning the sexes both of which continue to plague us yet did bring out the significance of difference and of the impact of the environment. In life he was difficult he was difficult to be around, and had problems relating to others, yet he gave glimpses of a rare connectedness. Rousseau, J-J. The essay that first established Rousseau. Translated with an introduction by M. Cranston edn. Said to be one of the most revolutionary documents to have come out of eighteenth-century Europe.
