    Revolutionary Change and the Rise of Human Rights. Human rights--inalienable rights belonging equally and by nature to all human beings--emerged during the French and American Revolutions based on Enlightenment ideas, legal traditions, and the innovations of the English Civil War and the Revolution of The need for this book became apparent to me in the summer of when I directed an institute on The French Revolution: Texts and Contexts, sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities. As a historical event, a literary or philosophical referent, or a creative impulsion, the French Revolution has relevance to every discipline; thus.

    Summary. Rousseau’s project in the Discourse on Inequality is to describe all the sorts of inequality that exist among human beings and to determine which sorts of inequality are “natural” and which “unnatural” (and therefore preventable). Rousseau begins by discussing man in his state of nature. For Rousseau, man in his state of nature is essentially an animal like any .   The French Revolution tells us loads about human nature. This was an event which lasted for a decade, full of the most unbelievable, extravagant, and bloody scenes in history. We can really focus on the vices here: greed, murder, deceit, betrayal.

      To understand this, Mr. Levin points to the late eighteenth century as a time of great upheaval, both in practical politics as well as political philosophy, represented in the American and French Revolutions and the Anglo-American debate about the French revolution. He looks to Burke and Paine as perhaps the best representatives of the parties.   We did not transcend our biology but were a product of it, with human nature the result of millions of years of evolution hardwired into our bodies and brains. Edward O. Wilson, the Harvard biologist who got his start studying ant colonies, was on the front lines of this revolution, and his book Sociobiology was a founding text.
