Mathematics in the French Revolution

Part of the Springer Undergraduate Mathematics Series book series (SUMS)

Abstract

The French Revolution is usually said to have begun in 1789, when the National Constituent Assembly, a parliament-like body of aristocrats, churchmen and commoners, alarmed by the violent behaviour of the peasantry — a Parisian rabble had already destroyed the symbolic but by then almost empty prison of the Bastille on 14 July 1789 — hoped to appease them by abolishing the feudal regime (4 August 1789) and passing the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen (26 August).
