Abstract

Part I: Louis Gérard (1733-1819); his development of a system of natural classification; the "Flora Gallo-Provincialis" (1761) and its fate. Part II: The progress of the idea of natural classification in the later eighteenth century; the cult of sensibility vs. the cult of reason; and the academic politics of the French Revolution. Part III: Jean Henri Jaume Saint-Hilaire (1772-1845) and his "Exposition des familles naturelles" (1805); the task of popularizing natural classification; and a new role for botany in the democratization of society in the nineteenth century.
