This movement allows Rousseau to think of what is moving or affecting in the cogito: to speak of a feeling of existence. Feeling the movement of the mind itself, Rousseau echoes what could be called the affirmative moment implicit in Descartes’ cogito: the possibility of transforming utmost doubt into absolute certainty is contingent on the emptiness of the cogito, on its being purely reflexive thinking, affirmed over and above all contents of thought.
The reading and the dedication of the writing become related, and the title of Plutarch’s essay provides a characterization of the condition Rousseau finds himself in: “The moments of rapture and ecstasy which I sometimes experienced during these solitary walks were joys I owed to my persecutors; without them I should never have known or discovered the treasures that lay within me” (36). 1 What makes the difference is that the restatement is not an homage, but an ironic duplication that casts doubt on the intention of the one who swears to that principle.

It also sets an opposition between establishing knowledge based on first principles and discovering the soul by way Space, Time, Motion, and Rest • 37 of its world.
