Abstract: This paper tries to reveal that the problem of philosopher-king can also exist in modern political philosophy besides Plato’s. The problem arises out of the conflict between reason and passions in the soul of our human-beings.Rousseau attempts to solve the conflict, but unfortunately, his methods lead to other conflicts, which can also be understood as Rousseau’s own problem of philosopher-king.
