The following quote from Rousseau is from Emile, I think, but I want to know exactly where to find it. Can someone help me?

“To get a good idea of public education, read Plato’s Republic. It is not a political treatise, as those who merely judge books by their title think, but it is the finest, most beautiful work on education ever written.”

If you wish to know what is meant by public education, read Plato'sRepublic. Those who merely judge books by their titles take this for a treatise on politics, but it is the finest treatise on education ever written.~Rousseau, Emile, Book I

You'll find that exact quote in the book:

Authors; William Cooney,Ph.D.,‎ Charles Cross, Ph.D. and Barry Trunk, Ph.D.
Published 1993 by University Press of America

Rousseau's quote can be found on page 69.

It is always so appreciated when someone actually comes back to thank us.

Very polite.
