Rousseau's thoughts on the Unity between Law and Morality in Building the Rule of Law State

Nguyen Trung Hieu [2]


Abstract: As the second generation of the French Enlightenment movement, Rousseau's thoughts on the rule of law are a full convergence of positive and progressive features of the times. This paper aims to analyze Rousseau's thoughts of a just legal system and political virtue where the people want to protect the freedom and equality of citizens, which brought great value to the bourgeois revolutionary movement in the eighteenth century. By using the research methods such as analysis, synthesis and comparison, the author has found that up to now, Rousseau's ideology on law and morality has still had many inherited values, contributing to enriching the theory of building a socialist rule of law State in Vietnam.
