The text Rousseau’s present of the political-social-educational thought of, is an article of reflection, based on the reading of Du Contract Social or in Castilian The Social Contract, authored by the Swiss thinker Jean-Jacob Rousseau; the authors set out to discuss the possibilities of achieving their ideals in the current context and at the same time to recognize the validity of several ideas of their own in terms of citizen training in Colombia. We proceeded to the tracing of works that inquired the same subject or were related and was chosen like version of header the translation of, 1999. The great work written in 1762 was chosen for explicitly collecting the author’s political and social thought. The authors made a biographical approach to the thinker as a mechanism to get closer to the reading of the work, to have tools for discussion, to expose the interests in addressing this issue and its diffusion, to argue and to contextualize in a different time and country. Although there is much to deepen into the subject, we reached some conclusions among which we can mention: The reflection of concepts associated with political formation, the general will and sovereign, in connection with situations of society and education in the Colombian context; the identification of the importance of the principles of politics and virtue in the formation of leaders and the general will as a reflection of the social and individual constitution, among others.
