More About This Book

Overview

Polémiques et constructifs à la fois, faits de reprises et de traductions, de controverses et de confrontations, les échanges entre les savants britanniques et français ont joué un rôle essentiel dans le développement de la science en Europe depuis le XVIIe siècle. Ni les guerres qui ont opposé les deux pays,
ni l'attachement à des figures emblématiques d'une science nationale n'ont pu durablement entraver la poursuite de constantes interactions et de fructueuses collaborations au service du développement du savoir.
Les dix-neuf contributions ici rassemblées, dont les auteurs,
français ou britanniques, s'expriment chacun dans leur langue, examinent avec précision quelques-uns des épisodes de ces échanges, dans les domaines des mathématiques et de l'astronomie, de la physique, de la chimie et des théories du vivant, en s'attachant à la correspondance, aux politiques de traduction, aux relations entre institutions savantes ou aux prolongements techniques et industriels de la recherche.
Ces travaux résultent d'un colloque qui s'est tenu à la Maison française d'Oxford en mars 2006 à l'initiative de la Société
française d'histoire des sciences et des techniques et de l'European
Society for the history of science, en collaboration avec la British society for the history of science et le réseau Europaeum.

Interactions between the scientific communities of Britain and
France have done much to fashion the course of European science since the seventeenth century. Marked on occasions by rivalry and unhelpful displays of national pride as well as by cooperation, the interactions provide a fascinating subject for historical enquiry. This volume assembles nineteen essays on key themes including travel, correspondence, translation,
collaborative and competitive research, and the role of exchanges at both the personal and the institutional level, with examples drawn from astronomy, mathematics, the physical and life sciences, and the work of industrial laboratories.
The essays have their origin in an international conference held at the Maison française, Oxford in March 2006 as a joint initiative of the Société française d'histoire des sciences et des techniques and the European Society for the History of Science,
in collaboration with the British Society for the History of
Science and the Europaeum network of European universities.
