Mause I 46
Inequality/Rousseau: in his discourse on inequality (Discours sur l'inégalité) of 1755, Rousseau notes the equiprimordial of the historical establishment of property with the emergence of civil society (Rousseau 1988, p. 230) and attributes to it the loss of natural freedom, equality and innocence of the natural state. This loss is irreversible, but the lack of freedom, inequality and moral depravity of the bourgeois society driven by the selfishness (amour propre) of individuals can be overcome politically. (1)
According to Rousseau, the extensive homogeneity of property relations is one of the social functional conditions of a good, republican order.
