    Abstract:
    When Émilie Du Châtelet published her magnum opus, Institutions de physique, in 1740, it was quickly met with excited reactions from mathematicians and philosophers throughout the Continent.1 Within a few short years, it was read and discussed by philosophers like Kant and Wolff and by mathematicians like the Bernoullis, Euler and D’Alembert.
