Name Notes: Named for its relationship with Rousseau Peak. Therese Lavasseur was an illiterate seamstress who bore Rousseau five children. As a result of his theories on education and child-rearing, Rousseau has often been criticized by Voltaire and modern commentators for putting his children in an orphanage as soon as they were weaned. In his defense, Rousseau explained that he would have been a poor father, and that the children would have a better life at the foundling home.
