Summary of Selected Philosophical and Scientific Writings – 1st Edition
From publisher University of Chicago Press:
Though most historians remember her as the mistress of Voltaire, Emilie Du Chtelet (1706-49) was an accomplished writer in her own right, who published multiple editions of her scientific writings during her lifetime, as well as a translation of Newton’s Principia Mathematica that is still the standard edition of that work in French. Had she been a man, her reputation as a member of the eighteenth-century French intellectual elite would have been assured. In the 1970s, feminist historians of science began the slow work of recovering Du Chtelet’s writings and her contributions to history and philosophy. For this edition, Judith P. Zinsser has selected key sections from Du Chtelet’s published and unpublished works, as well as related correspondence, part of her little-known critique of the Old and New Testaments, and a treatise on happiness that is a refreshingly uncensored piece of autobiography-making all of them available for the first time in English. The resulting volume will recover Chtelet’s place in the pantheon of French letters and culture.
