This work places more emphasis on the history of science in France because French science has been less well recorded. Three of aspects science history are addressed: the potentially hostile view the public takes of science; the importance of qualifications; and the national context of science. Some articles present a broad perspective, others are more detailed and draw upon the archives of the Paris Academy of Sciences and the Royal Society of London. An interpretation of the career of Priestley is followed by a historiographical article on Lavoisier. Other subjects include the professionalization of science.
