Early modern natural philosophy

“Le présent recueil contribue à combler une lacune. Il y a quelque chose de choquant à constater à quel point, jusqu'à aujourd'hui, les études littéraires se sont tenues en marge des sciences, alors que la connaissance de Descartes ou de Pascal demeure incomplète si l'on ignore leurs travaux mathématiques. Réciproquement, ce recueil devrait aussi permettre la prise en compte, du côté de l'histoire des sciences, des caractères rhétoriques et littéraires qui marquent les grandes œuvres mathématiques de l'époque classique.
