Emilie du Châtelet was one of the most influential woman philosophers of the Enlightenment. Her writings on natural philosophy, physics, and mechanics had a decisive impact on important scientific debates of the 18th century. Particularly, she took an innovative and outstanding position in the controversy between Newton and Leibniz, one of the fundamental scientific discourses of that time. The contributions in this volume focus on this "Leibnitian turn". They analyze the nature and motivation of Emilie du Châtelet's synthesis of Newtonian and Leibnitian philosophy. Apart from the Institutions Physiques they deal with Emilie du Châtelet's annotated translation of Isaac Newton's Principia. The chapters presented here collectively demonstrate that her work was an essential contribution to the mediation between empiricist and rationalist positions in the history of science.

This study offers a new view on the development of an urban culture of writing in one of the major cities of late medieval Europe. Via the examination of a tremendous number of documents from the Augsburg city archive it shows how civic authorities started to rely more and more on written records, which in turn created the need for archiving. The power of this process primarily resulted from a growing desire for supervision and control. Die Studie eröffnet einen neuen Blick auf den Entstehungsprozess kommunaler Schriftkultur in einer europäischen Großstadt des Spätmittelalters. Die Auswertung der umfangreichen Überlieferung im Stadtarchiv Augsburg zeigt, wie städtische Autoritäten zunehmend auf Schriftlichkeit angewiesen waren und dabei eigene Bedürfnisse der Archivierung ausprägten. Als zentrale Antriebskraft der Verschriftlichung tritt dabei ein wachsendes Bedürfnis nach Kontrolle und Überprüfbarkeit hervor.
