Science and polity in France : the revolutionary and Napoleonic years by Charles Coulston Gillispie( )

40 editions published between 1980 and 2014 in English and held by 3,948 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the 1770s through the 1820s, the French scientific community predominated in the world to a degree that no other scientific establishment did in any period prior to the Second World War. In his classic Science and Polity in France: The End of the Old Regime, Charles Gillispie analyzed the cultural, political, and technical factors that encouraged scientific productivity on the eve of the Revolution. In the present monumental sequel to that work, which Princeton is reissuing concurrently, he examines how the revolutionary and Napoleonic contexts contributed to modernization of both politics and science."--Jacket

Pierre-Simon Laplace, 1749-1827 : a life in exact science by Charles Coulston Gillispie( Book )

29 editions published between 1997 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 884 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pierre-Simon Laplace was among the most influential scientists in history. Often referred to as the lawgiver of French science, he is known for his technical contributions to exact science, for the philosophical point of view he developed in the presentation of his work, and for the leading part he took in forming the modern discipline of mathematical physics. His two most famous treatises were the five-volume Traite de mecanique celeste (1799-1825) and Theorie analytique des probabilites (1812). In the former, he demonstrated mathematically the stability of the solar system in accordance with the universal Newtonian law of gravity. In the latter, he developed probability from a set of miscellaneous problems concerning games, averages, mortality, and insurance risks. These estimates of error and statistical inferences could be applied to social, medical, and legal matters, as well as to the physical sciences. This book traces the development of Laplace's research program and of his participation in the Academy of Science during the last decades of the Old Regime into the early years of the French Revolution

Lazare and Sadi Carnot : a scientific and filial relationship by Charles Coulston Gillispie( )

26 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lazare Carnot was the unique example in the history of science of someone who inadvertently owed the scientific recognition he eventually achieved to earlier political prominence. He and his son Sadi produced?work that derived from their training as engineering and went largely unnoticed by physicists for a generation or more, even though their respective work introduced concepts that proved fundamental when taken up later by other hands. There was, moreover, a filial as well as substantive relation between the work of father and son. Sadi applied to the functioning of heat engines the analysi
