Chapter Summary

The ratio of Vattel and Rousseau appears, at first glance, as a ratio to unilateral, enigmatic and paradoxical. In 1758 with the release of international law, Rousseau has not yet released its fundamental political texts, which are subsequent to vattélien Treaty. The manuscript Rousseau spent by the Principles of the law of war, where he formulated for the first time his theory of the state of war as the relationship between states as well as all first drafts of the just war theory that is found in the Social Contract, dates back to the period 1755-1756. The reference to the 'Nature of Things' to 'human kind' and 'companies' as the source of law was quite widespread. In the manuscript, Rousseau Discusses the definition of starting war to use the language of the Second Discourse. The original text of the chapter is in French.
