Les sciences, telles qu'elles sont aujourd'hui internationalement pratiquees dans les laboratoires, les congres, les revues specialisees, sont pour l'essentiel les heritieres des sciences europeennes. Ce volume se propose d'examiner quand et comment ces sciences et la philosophie naturelle associee se sont deployees en Europe. L'hypothese proposee est aussi simple qu'importante : l'Europe en constitution a rendu possible le developpement de ces sciences et de la philosophie naturelle; reciproquement, la constitution de ces domaines de savoir a constitue une des trames les plus stables et profondes qui font exister l'Europe. Deux periodes semblent decisives pour la constitution de l'Europe scientifique, le XIIIe et le XVIIe siecle. Ce volume ambitionne aussi a contribuer a la problematique suivante : la revolution scientifique du XVIIe aurait-elle confirme, poursuivi et renforce ce qui s'etait passe au XIIIe siecle, ou au contraire s'agit-il d'une rupture decisive qui a permis l'emergence de la science nouvelle?
