Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] This volume presents a diachronic terminology course in the history of French and European culture at the time of the great scientific and technical revolution of the eighteenth century. From the medieval "scientia" to the arts of doing, it is during this century that the arts and crafts enter more and more into dialogue with scientific knowledge: the epistemological mutation that goes from art to science and from science to arts and crafts is a story of terms and new nomenclatures. The historical reconstruction of the meaning of key terms, such as art and industry, artist and craftsman, mechanical and technical art, helps to penetrate the secrets of the arts and crafts communities of the eighteenth century, be it watchmaking or earthenware, headgear or tapestry, tools or machinery. The terminology has constantly evolved and traced in words the path of luxury and French prestige in the world of arts and crafts.
