Abstract

On a réuni ici le texte abrégé de trois communications présentées au Congrès de l'Association française pour l'Avancement des Sciences, à Orléans, en 1972, concernant des hommes de science du XVIIe siècle. Doru Todériciu établit la vraie biographie de Samuel Duclos (1598-1685), un de premiers membres de l'ancienne Académie des Sciences, en le distinguant de trois autres médecins ou chimistes de même nom que les biographes avaient jusqu'ici confondus. Suzanne Delorme étudie la vie de Henri-Louis Habert de Montmor (1600-1679), ami à la fois de Descartes et de Gassendi, qui réunissait chez lui savants et philosophes en une assemblée qui servit de modèle à l'Académie Royale des Sciences. Pierre Costabel précise la personnalité scientifique de Florimond de Beaune, érudit et savant de Blois (1601-1652), grâce à l'inventaire après décès de ses livres et de ses machines. Here is the abridged text of three papers about scientists of the XVIIth century, read to the Congress of the French Association for the Advancement of Sciences, at Orleans in 1972. D. Todériciu establishes the true biography of Samuel Duclos, one of the first members of the old French Academy of Sciences. Until now, biographers had not distinguished between him and three other physicians and chemists with same proper name. S. Delorme studies the life of Henri-Louis Habert de Montmor, who was both a friend of Cartesius and Gassendi. Scientific men and philosophers met at his house, and these meetings inspired the Royal Academy of Science. P. Costabel throws a light on the scientific personality of Florimond de Beaune, a learned man and scientist from the French town of Blois, by means of an inventory, after his death, of his books and machines.
