Jean Jacques Rousseau If you try to justify why human society goes from a wonderful and positive state of nature into a mostly uncontrollable political state it is virtually impossible Rousseau feels that when we enter into this political state or society that it is an inevitable Humans will reach their potential however at the same time society takes us away from our natural state and corrupts us In this state of nature humans are basically good Rousseau thinks that nature should educate because it educates according to necessity Throughout time human society has evolved into a society educated by man In the past man has learned off of nature and his environment only to do and have what was necessary to get by For the reason that man knew of no other life other than his own man was happy However in todays society man knows of many ways of life There are many more ways to live things to learn about and possessions to own In this aspect man needs more than natures education in order to live in this society in which we have created Todays education changes day to day in order to adapt to daily challenges Nature does have an important role in the education of an individual however in order for a person in todays society to be able to live a mentally and physically healthy and happy life he or she must learn not only through nature but also by man The three main educative forces Rousseau talks about are nature men and also things The education of nature consists only of what the human body is born with Nature teaches us boundaries while balancing our power and will With too much power or will we are not able to realize the one that is being overpowered Thus causing us to exceed the lessor of the two and forcing us to balance our expectations with our abilities
