St Petersburg Manuscripts: The First Digital and the First Historical-Critical Edition of Émilie Du Châtelet’s Early Works


| 3:15 PM - 4:45 PM | Center for the History of Women Philosophers and Scientists

In a collaborative project of the National Library of Russia, Saint Petersburg, Russia, the  Centre international d’étude du XVIIIe siècle, France and the Center for the History of Women Philosophers and Scientists, Germany, present the first digital and the first critical edition of the Émilie Du Châtelet manuscripts.  A special focus of the center lies in exploring the writings of philosopher, mathematician and physicist Émilie Du Châtelet. Newton and Leibniz defined the controversy of her era. Du Châtelet integrated both perspectives and created a new path in philosophy. Her philosophy of nature was immediately translated into German in 1743. Kant wrote his first dissertation on her ideas and was influenced by her throughout his life. https://historyofwomenphilosophers.org/stp/
