It is Randolph’s fault that Mr. Sansom is paralyzed and he needs Joel’s help, but no one tells him this at first. In the novel, Joel’s father is the perfect embodiment for amour propre, or self love, which is described by Jean Jacques Rousseau. Rousseau states that there is self love and love of self, both which are completely different. Self love is the bad type and love of self is the good type.
