I was thoroughly enjoying this book until it came to the actual uarrel between Rousseau and Hume which was not two thinkers at war but two men in emotional distress in a way that s not fun to read aboutMeticulous research extensive uotes from letters good writing even handedness and an inherently interesting subject don t make up for the sheer pain of Rousseau s paranoia and Hume s distress and indignation as a response to being accused of treachery

What I ve learned of philosophy was removed from history so I never realized before picking up this book that David Hume and Jean Jacues Rousseau were contemporaries let alone that they had a very public feud The book wasn t what I expected okay to be honest I expected an episode of the odd couple in which one of the protagonists denies causality But what I received instead was a well written painstakingly researched history with a solid thesis The authors occasionally step aside from the action and talk about the very different philosophies and personalities of our philosophers in order to explain how a childish feud could erupt between two very enlightened men The book is slow in the beginning and I actually set it aside for about a month but it has a good payoff and I intend to pick up another book by Edmonds and Eidinow Wittgenstein s PokerOh and I was also expecting the book to talk about Rousseau s dog Sultan They tie him into the conclusion but still
