The Enlightenment was a period of great intellectual growth and independence and much of what we believe today about democracy and society come form thsi time period One gets the feeling that everyone in hte 18th century sat around at elegant salons and talked about philosophy and science but of course the slaons were only for a priveleged few and the Enlightenment may have a been period of great growth for many wealthy men but the participation of women was much limited and ambivelantCertainly there were a number of salons hosted by women during this period but few of them invited women to be guests In addition for many women being a salonierre was the only way they could get involved in the great movement but there were women who studied and read and wrote Emilie du Chatelet was one of those womenIt wasn t easy for her becuase he decision to write and study reuired the active support of the men in her life and her work was often interrupted by her fmaily responsibilities I think many women nowadays could say the same thing Du Chatelet became intrigued by math and science when she was in her late twenties She was insatiable and determined and to learn geometry and calculus she finally learned these well enough to translate Newton and write a defense of Leibnitz She was ridiculed and gossiped about but she persevered and managed to be both a successful wifemother and a geometreDu Chatelet was one of the exceptions to the rule She managed to find her way in the Enlightenment without hosting a salon and to hold her own with men The Outcast Dead read and wrote Emilie du Chatelet was one of those womenIt wasn t easy for her becuase he decision to write and study ಅಮ್ಮಾವ್ರ ಗಂಡ reuired the active support of the men in her life and her work was often interrupted by her fmaily Potato Surprise A Brimstone Preuel responsibilities I think many women nowadays could say the same thing Du Chatelet became intrigued by math and science when she was in her late twenties She was insatiable and determined and to learn geometry and calculus she finally learned these well enough to translate Newton and write a defense of Leibnitz She was Winning The Player ridiculed and gossiped about but she persevered and managed to be both a successful wifemother and a geometreDu Chatelet was one of the exceptions to the Hell for the Company Brimstone #1 rule She managed to find her way in the Enlightenment without hosting a salon and to hold her own with men

Emilie Du Chatelet review Ü 103 read & download Ù eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Judith P. Zinsser read & download Emilie Du Chatelet Cting a highly visible affair with a commoner writing philosophical works and translating Newton's Principia while pregnant by a younger lover With the sweep of Galileo's Daughter Emilie Du Châtelet captures the charm glamour and brilliance of this magnetic woman. I couldn t finish this well written carefully researched biography Zinsser uses a lot of background descriptonsl as well as a lot of stories about Voltaire et al to flesh out the limited material about Chatelet Starting with three introductions she presents an interesting discussion of the choices we have in representing a life Her effort to discover what facilitated this apparently frivolous aristocrat to become a scholar of note while unconvincing got me thinking about how subtle the forces that turn a life on one direction or another can be I got impatient however looking for a thorough discussion of her ideas and her intellectual accomplishments
