Autour de Descartes et Newton Le paysage scientifique lyonnais dans le premier XVIII e siècle

Abstract : In the first eighteenth century, throughout Europe, "Cartesianism" and "Newtonianism" gave rise to sometimes bitter discussions. What was the situation in Lyon? Which side do the scholars of Lyon take? What are they thinking about? In what epistemological frameworks do they place their work? What place do these reflections and works occupy within the Republic of Letters and are they original? These are the questions that this book seeks to answer by relying in particular on manuscript documents preserved in the archives of the Academy of Sciences, Belles-Lettres et Arts de Lyon.
