The Confessions is an autobiographical book written by Jean-Jacques Rousseau and originally published posthumously in 1782.

The book covers the first hundred and three years of the philosopher's life, up to 1765, and although Rousseau read some passages at different meetings, it was not published as a book until four years after the writer's death.

In this autobiography, Rousseau tells us about the events and experiences that originated his ideas and philosophy. It is one of the first relevant and best-known autobiographies of him.
