Literature

Émile or On Education, published in 1762 by Jean-Jacques Rousseau, is a five-part treatise on education addressing the “art of training men.” The first four books describe the ideal rearing and education of Émile, a fictitious young man. The work addresses educational issues as they arise chronologically during his rearing. One of the educational objectives of the child is learning about the love and respect of nature. The decoration of our watch is most likely an allusion to Book II: 2-12 years: The Age of Naure. For Rousseau, it is during this phase when Émile expands and develops his relationship with Nature by developing his senses and ability to understand the physical world.
