Although largely neglected in the literature, Benjamin Constant was one of Rousseau's most powerful and subtle nineteenth-century critics

Although largely neglected in the literature, Benjamin Constant was one of Rousseau's most powerful and subtle nineteenth-century critics. In the first part of this essay, I have revived Constant's criticism of Rousseau's conception of freedom and tyranny.

In the social contract tradition the choice of political principles is unanimous. These critics are also likely to be more equalitarian than Rawls. By construing the choice of principles in the original position this way, Rawls has transformed the problem of justice into a problem in the theory of rational choice.

Contract theory - as distinct from social contract theory - permits individuals to abstain from entering into a contract. Rousseau, however, holds that even individuals who disagree with elements of the social contract must nevertheless agree to abide by it or risk punishment. This perspective, however, ignores the fact that social contract theory is more of a philosophy than an actual contract, and is thus not held to the same standards. Rousseau specifies that by taking up residence in civilized society, individuals tacitly consent to the dictates of the social contract.

In moral and political philosophy, the social contract is a theory or model that originated during the Age of Enlightenment and usually concerns the legitimacy of the authority of the state over the individual.
