characters Les Rêveries du promeneur solitaire Read & Download Les Rêveries du promeneur solitaire 107 characters ✓ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ↠ Jean-Jacques Rousseau Solitary Walker Combining philosophical argument with amusing anecdotes and lyrical desriptive passages they record the great French writer's sense of isolation and alienation from a world which he felt had rejected his work A. Revery seems to have fallen out of favor nowadays If it s not one of ten million authorities emphasizing the need for efficiency and planned action or modern evolutionists of all sorts in business in fitness in the arts convincing us that if what we re doing isn t in the name of advancement and improvement then it s not worth doing or just us telling ourselves that we must keep up with everything and everyone else and so have no time to swim around in our own selves revery has become the stepsister of onanism I suspect that first cable television and now the internet on top of it have become our objects of revery and often even do the reverying for us Or rather TRY to do it for these are surely only false reveries But what does revery even mean I have an immediate vague notion of pointless daydreaming or being lost in thought and I think that s pretty close but the old style revery involved even it was akin to out of body travel soul travel living in a waking dream One would gaze at something and enter that something and begin to travel through one s mind Or one would walk and through the rhythm of the walking memories and thoughts would be dislodged and multiple chains of associative reactions would occur and one would truly be lost in thought in an effectively infinite cosmos of the mind or walk off the edge of a cliff And revery is like walking off that cliff becoming untethered from the daily grind and habitual patterns like a vast unbuckling of thought moving every whichaway in a world gone loosy goosyRousseau opposes revery to thought saying that he has never been a great thinker and by this I think he s saying that thought is the active manipulation of our mind and soul activity into intentional patterns a directed activity with often preconceived ideas while revery is passive unintentional non conceptualThere s a lot of self pitying in this book but than that it s a book of almost heroic honesty and self revelation and it s a thrill to read his thoughts move back and forth between rancor and venom spat out at his contemporaries while at the same time saying he hates no one and some very moving expressions of universal good will and union with nature It s full of stimulating contradictions which makes it just seem all the real And of course there are also a lot of fruitful reveries or rather the book is the fruit of the reveries and it s definitely an apple worth chomping into

These hours of solitude and meditation are the only time of the day when I am completely myself without distraction or hindrance and when I can truly say that I am what nature intended me to be Second Walk For although I am perhaps the only person in the world to whom destiny has decreed that he should live in this way I cannot believe that I am the only person to have such a natural inclination for it although I have so far not come across it in anyone else Fifth Walk All the judgements of men are henceforth of no significance to me Seventh Walk I am a hundred times happier on my own than I could ever be living with them and whatever they may do my contemporaries will never mean anything to me First WalkRousseau s Reveries comprise Nine complete Walks and an unfinished Tenth each being a short essay loosely focused around a particular topic but with freuent digressionsDigressions are not the only point of comparison with Montaigne the catalyst of composition the light yet profound style the translator picks up on these similarities in his introduction Montaigne s playfulness here evoking the movement of his thoughts and his own wanderings points to a third link between his Essays and Rousseau s Reveries they are both texts written on the go In his chapter On Three Kinds of Social Intercourse he describes how in his library sometimes my mind wanders off at others I walk to and fro noting down and dictating these whims of mine and in his chapter On Some Lines of Virgil Montaigne describes how sometimes he thinks best while he is on the moveBut what displeases me about my soul is that she usually gives birth uite unexpectedly when I am least on the lookout for them to her profoundest her maddest ravings r veries which please me most Then they uickly vanish away because then and there I have nothing to jot them down on it happens when I am on my horse or at table or in bed especially on my horse the seat of my widest musingsPerhaps the last and potentially most far reaching thing that Montaigne s Essays and Rousseau s Reveries have in common is that both texts attempt to portray the twists and turns of each writer s mind Like Montaigne before him Rousseau forges has identity through a process of spontaneous mental combustion through the accumulation of thoughts and memories like the Essays the Reveries paint the portrait of a thinking man as he thinks Although tying into the sense of isolation bred by the distaste for society and love of solitude a topic with which as I did with Leopardi I found a strong resonance Rousseau does point out a divergence between the two My task is the same as that of Montaigne but my aim is the exact opposite of his for he wrote his essays entirely for others whearas I am writing my reveries entirely for myself An excellent if unfortunately concise work by Rousseau for me the Reveries did indeed recall Montaigne as well as Leopardi with Rousseau s musings on the vanities of societyLots to take away from such a short work Highly recommended These pages may be considered as an appendix to my Confessions but that is not the title I give them Thrown as a child into the maelstrom of the world I learned from an early age that I was not made to live in it and that in it I would never reach the state for which my heart longedIt is from this time that I can date my complete renunciation of the wold and that great fondness for solitude that has never left me since The work that I was undertaking could only be accomplished in absolute isolation it called for the kind of long and undisturbed meditations that the tumult of society does not allow That forced me for a time to adopt a different way of life which I was subseuently so glad to have done that having since then interrupted it only against my will and for short periods of time I returned to it most readily and limited myself to it uite easily as soon as I could The conclusion I can draw from all these reflections is that I have never really been suited to civil society where there is nothing but irritation obligation and duty and that my independent nature always made me incapable of the constraints reuired of anyone who wants to live with themI became a solitary or as they call it unsociable and misanthropic because the fiercest solitude seems to me preferable to the society of the wicked which thrives only on treachery and hatredIt is in one s youth that one should study wisdom in one s old age one should practice itI have seen many men who philosophised much learnedly than I but their philosophy was as it were external to them Wanting to be learned than anyone else they studied the universe to find out how it was to be arranged in the same way as they might have studied some machine the they happened to see that is out of pure curiosity They studied human nature in order to be able to speak learnedly about it but not in order to know themselves they worked in order to instruct others but not in pursuit of their own inner enlightenment I have always believed that before instructing others one has to first know enough for oneselfTheir philosophy is for others I need one for myselfBut what I feared most in the world given the state of mind in which I felt myself to be was endangering the eternal fate of my should for the sake of enjoying worldly riches the value of which has never seemed to me to be very greatI need to remind myself of my former decisions the care the attention and the sincerity of heart with which I took them them come back to mind and restore my complete confidence Thus I reject all new ideas as if they were harmful errors which have only a false appearance of truth and which are the only fit to disturb my peace of mindAmong the small number of books that I still sometimes read Plutarch is the author whom I enjoy most and find most usefulVery often what does good to one person does harm to another and private interest is almost always ion conflict with with public interest consider these two months to be the happiest time in my life so happy in fact that it would have been enough for me to have lived like that for the whole of my life without ever feeling in my soul the desire to live in any other state and finally go off to bed happy with the day that had passed and wishing only for the next day to be similarI have noticed however in the ups and downs of a long life that it is not the memory of the periods of the sweetest joys and keenest pleasures that draws me and touches me the most These brief moments of madness and passion however intense they may be are precisely because of their very intensity only ever scattered points along the line of our life They are too rare and too fleeting to constitute a proper state of being and the happiness that my heart longs for is not made up of short lived moments but of a simple and lasting state which has nothing intense about it in itself but which is all the charming because it lasts so much so that it finally offers the height of happinessI recovered my serenity tranuility peace and even my happiness since every day of my life brings me the pleasure of remembering the previous day s happiness and I desire nothing for the next dayBut most men being constantly stirred by passion know little of this state and having only ever experienced it imperfectly and briefly they have only a vague and confused idea of it which gives them no sense of its charm Everything for me is merely false and deceptive appearance
