Comparative Study on the Political Philosophy of Rousseau and Marx Through Marx’s Communist Manifesto

Shi Min


There are many ideas in common between Rousseau and Marx, Marx illustrated many political thoughts by a philosophy method, and Rousseau also proposed many propositions after he studied the history of political philosophy. On the field of democracy, Marx tried to connect political thoughts between Kant and Hegel, and Rousseau tried to connect his political thoughts with Plato and Aristotle. Both of Rousseau’s and Marx’s political philosophy can be concluded as products of social cognition.
