The introduction includes details of the biographical, historical, and intellectual context of the relationship between Adam Smith and Jean-Jacques Rousseau. It places the chapters that follow in the proper intellectual context allowing the reader to immerse themselves in the detailed arguments of each chapter with a ready sense of the broad parameters of the relationship and ideas in question. The introduction also provides a brief account of the existing literature on the relationship between Smith and Rousseau, and ends with an introduction to the chapters, their main themes, and the relationship between them.
