Abstract

La connaissance et l'étude des sources et des livres étudiés par les savants est un instrument d'une importance fondamentale pour une compréhension historique correcte de leur contribution scientifique et de leur originalité. La bibliothèque de Lavoisier constitue un exemple significatif de cette importance. En analysant les livres de chimie et de physique lus par le jeune Lavoisier au début de sa carrière scientifique, cet article cherche à dégager leur influence sur l'élaboration de la nouvelle philosophie de la matière de Lavoisier. In this paper I examine the most important works of chemistry read or owned by Lavoisier during the period 1764-1774. An analysis of Lavoisier's library, early works and correspondence has made it possible to identify the books which had a particular influence on his chemical system and the way in which he read and used them in the elaboration of his research.
