    DescriptionJean-Jacques Rousseau and David Hume were giants of the Enlightenment, men whose writings would forever shape our world. But when they fell out, they did so on a grand scale - to reveal a very human story of compassion, treachery, anger and revenge. In "Rousseau's Dog", David Edmonds and John Eidinow bring their narrative verve to the bitter quarrel that turned these two Enlightenment giants into mortal foes. The result is a story of celebrity and its price, of shameless spin, of destroyed reputations and shattered friendships.
