Once Emile is physically strong and learns to carefully observe the world around him, he is ready for the last part of his education—sentiment: "We have made an active and thinking being. It remains for us, in order to complete the man, only to make a loving and feeling being—that is to say, to perfect reason by sentiment".
Rousseau argues that the child cannot put himself in the place of others but once adolescence has been reached and he is able do so, Emile can finally be brought into the world and socialized. In addition to introducing a newly passionate Emile to society during his adolescent years, the tutor also introduces him to religion. According to Rousseau, children cannot understand abstract concepts such as the soul before the age of about fifteen or sixteen, so to introduce religion to them is dangerous.
He writes: "It is a lesser evil to be unaware of the divinity than to offend it". Book IV also contains the famous "Profession of Faith of the Savoyard Vicar", the section that was largely responsible for the condemnation of Emile and the one most frequently excerpted and published independently of its parent tome. This brief description of female education sparked an immense contemporary response, perhaps even more so than Emile itself.
Émile, or Treatise on Education (Émile, ou De l’éducation) 1762)
Mary Wollstonecraft , for example, dedicated a substantial portion of her chapter "Animadversions on Some of the Writers who have Rendered Women Objects of Pity, Bordering on Contempt" in A Vindication of the Rights of Woman to attacking Rousseau and his arguments. Educate women like men,' says Rousseau [in Emile ], 'and the more they resemble our sex the less power will they have over us.
I do not wish them to have power over men; but over themselves. She believes that females' education affects their role in society, not natural differences as Rousseau argues. Rousseau begins his description of Sophie, the ideal woman, by describing the inherent differences between men and women in a famous passage:.
In what they have in common, they are equal. Where they differ, they are not comparable. A perfect woman and a perfect man ought not to resemble each other in mind any more than in looks, and perfection is not susceptible of more or less. In the union of the sexes each contributes equally to the common aim, but not in the same way.
From this diversity arises the first assignable difference in the moral relations of the two sexes. For Rousseau, "everything man and woman have in common belongs to the species, and Rousseau also touches on the political upbringing of Emile in book V by including a concise version of his Social Contract in the book.
His political treatise The Social Contract was published in the same year as Emile and was likewise soon banned by the government for its controversial theories on general will. The version of this work in Emile , however, does not go into detail concerning the tension between the Sovereign and the Executive, but instead refer the reader to the original work.
Rousseau's stance on female education, much like the other ideas explored in Emile , "crystallize existing feelings" of the time. During the eighteenth century, women's education was traditionally focused on domestic skills—including sewing, housekeeping, and cooking—as they were encouraged to stay within their suitable spheres, which Rousseau advocates. Throughout the agonized internal monologue, represented through letters to his old tutor, he repeatedly comments on all of the affective ties that he has formed in his domestic life—"the chains [his heart] forged for itself".
Rousseau's contemporary and philosophical rival Voltaire was critical of Emile as a whole, but admired the section in the book which had led to it being banned the section titled "Profession of Faith of the Savoyard Vicar". According to Voltaire, Emile is. He says as many hurtful things against the philosophers as against Jesus Christ, but the philosophers will be more indulgent than the priests. However, Voltaire went on to endorse the Profession of Faith section and called it "fifty good pages The German scholar Goethe wrote in that "Emile and its sentiments had a universal influence on the cultivated mind".
