This paper is an attempt to discuss Rousseau’s ideas on educational practice through his book, Emile, arguably one of the most noteworthy books on education available today. Rousseau makes an effort to describe an approach to education based on nature, emphasizing harmony and a strong concern for the child. Such concepts are fundamental in Rousseau’s ideas, which would later impact child development theories of Werner, Pestalozzi, Herbert, Piaget and Vygotsky, albeit with different results and related theories.
