       moral perfection -- Pity and human weakness -- Romantic

       virtue, and moral authority -- The ecology of justice -- 
       The sociology of wholeness. 
520    Among Jean-Jacques Rousseau's chief preoccupations was the
       problem of self-interest implicit in all social 
       relationships. A person with divided loyalties (id est, to
       both himself and his cohorts) was, in Rousseau's thinking,
       a divided person. According to John Warner's Rousseau and 
       the Problem of Human Relations, not only did Rousseau 
       never solve this problem, he believed it was fundamentally
       unsolvable: social relationships could never restore 
       wholeness to a self-interested human being. Warner traces 
       his argument through the contours of Rousseau's thought on
       three distinct types of relationships--sexual love, 
       friendship, and civil or political association. Warner 
       concludes that none of these, whether examined 
       individually or together, provides a satisfactory 
       resolution to the problem of human dividedness located at 
       the center of Rousseau's thinking. In fact, concludes 
       Warner, Rousseau's failure to obtain anything hopeful from
       human associations is deliberate, self-conscious, and 
       revelatory of a tragic conception of human relations. Thus
       Rousseau raises our hopes only to dash them.
