Summary:
This thesis is constituted by the study of the geometer Gaspard Monge
scientific practice and by the edition of his correspondence during the second
part of the French revolution, when he was teacher and founding member of new
scientific domains and institutions and when he was member of the commission of
science and arts in Italy and Egypt.
According to Monge‘s biographers, the revolution (1789), his meeting and his
collaboration with Bonaparte in Italy and in Egypt (1796-1799) determine the
political turn in his carreer: His public action and his discourses of the
revolutionary period are characterized by the political feature that covers the
French revolution.
Thus the historical aim of the study and the edition of the 204 letters of this
period is the coordination between scientific practice and public action. And
to reach a better understanding of the scientific issues of the geometer’s
action during his service of the Republic, have been determined the features of
his public action, his scientific practice and his mathematical work,
underlining the specific perspective of the geometer on the political, cultural
and social facts.
