Yet while Rousseau is recognized as a political thinker, Herder is not. This book explores each thinkers ideas--on nature and culture, selfhood and mutuality, paternalism, freedom, and autonomy--and compares their conceptions of legitimate statehood.

Arguing that the crux of political legitimacy for both men was the possibility of extended selfhood, Barnard shows that Herder, like Rousseau, profoundly altered human self-understandings, thus influencing modes of justifying political allegiance.
