Final Remarks on the Scientific Relationship Between Père et Fils

  • Charles Coulston Gillispie
  • Raffaele Pisano
Chapter
Part of the History of Mechanism and Machine Science book series (HMMS, volume 19)

Abstract

Mainly based on the historical hypotheses announced by Charles Gillispie (1971), the Parisian workshop (Taton 1976) and finally on the historical and historical–epistemological investigations proposed in the previous chapters, we present here details and correlations on the scientific relationship between the two Carnots .

All evidence shows a common theoretical attitude to science and their sequence indicates that there is a great convergence of thought between the two theorists, at least as reflected together in one book.
