The aim of this paper is to show how tenderness (attendrissement) plays a key role in Rousseau’s conception of the dynamics of passions. The Author argues that, thanks to its authentic and spontaneous nature, tenderness is invested with a determinant moral role: it can in fact be regarded as a positive realization of self-love (amour propre), able to eliminate the pathological and competitive aspects which connote, from an historical but not constitutive point of view, the mutual interdependence of men in society.
Keywords: Jean-Jacques Rousseau, tenderness [attendrissement], passions, emotion, morality, self-love
