H. Bedeaux has already been noted as Du Chatelet s most important and important philosophical work. Her letters to and from other philosophers and scientists are valuable on a number of topics and indicate her role in thevis vivadebate as well as the philosophical work of the period. Du Chatelet continued to produce work during the 1750s; in 1754 she gave a presentation on the way in which one could determine the size of the solar system in the Royal Academy of Sciences in Paris. She did not live to see the culmination of her work in her sister Abbeys death in 1758. Yet, even at the height of her fame, Du Chatelet lived quite modestly with only one servant. Her only income came from her positions at the Conseil General and at the Royal Academy of Sciences, where she earned her living teaching philosophy.

After this review of Du Chatelet s career, we will continue with her philosophical work. She wrote a number of essays on the subjects of Epicurus and Epicureanism in particular, the vis vivadebate, and the immortality of the soul. We will look at these next.

Even more important, however, is the place that du Chtelet occupies in the philosophical thought of the day. There was a strong and developing tradition in natural philosophy, from the simple mechanical to the more subtle notion of force and motion, that especially in France was developed during the period from the late 1730s into the early 1770s. This thinking centered around the problem of explaining the nature of inertia, as well as various problems of space and motion, and was encouraged by Leibnizs vision of a natural philosophy which included both mechanical and dynamic aspects. Although some developments concerning the nature of inertial motion appeared in the opening decades of the 18th century, it was only in the 1730s that the idea of inertia as a non-mechanical property of bodies began to be accepted. This came about by means of the work of John Bennet (1679-1761), who after hes early encouragement by Leibniz devoted himself for decades to a discussion of the issue of inertia. At the same time, a similar problem of space and motion came to be treated by the movement of the French school of Newtonian physics, led by Bernoulli and Laplace. In their work, various notions such as force, inertia, and the conservation of momentum were brought together. Du Chtelet contributed her views on these matters, in part through her correspondence and in part in her own publications. But her chief contribution was in the area of the intermediary inertial properties of matter, and the extent to which the status of such a role that she could play in physical explanations should be of equal importance to the ideas of the French school.

**** Villet-Destouches has raised another point on the importance of this trial for the formation of the FDJ (de facto number 1 underground resistance organization) after Dachau (see DGUF message of Tauiburger from 1961) in December 1944; see the question/answer dated March 12, 2010. Villet-Destouches also mentions the death of Marcel Rioufol
The haughty lines of the opening stanza of this book, in which the author proclaims to have corrected the Miscribtos of Plautii and to have created the Opusculum of Moses, bear testimony to Briots religious affiliations and commitment to Biblicism. As a chief of the Congregation of the Oratory, Catherins political work with the Congregations of the Oratory in France was anything but brief. From his appointment as the Oratorys superior in 1671 to his final retirement in 1699, Catherin often and successfully petitioned for reforms of the church and was in a position to influence public opinion. It was for this reason that his collection is often called the Débâcle or Criseleur of the Oratorian Congregations. Catherin particularly became interested in the scientific works of a number of his contemporaries such as Ephriam Schwab and Antoine Chauveau. One of the most ambitious projects he undertook, whose results were published in four parts as the Traités du feu, du sang, du sperme, et de l’humect (Treatise on Fire, on Blood, on Sperme and on Humect), was a work which served as his epitomarum rerum physicarum (an epitome of physic and natural science). After Catherin, the production of scientific works continued in France and the Netherlands, and works on geography, chemistry and physics occupied a significant part of libraries.
