Extractions: Pierre de Carcavi received no university education. He was a counsellor to the parliament of Toulouse from 1632 until 1636. In fact he first met Fermat in 1632 when they were both members of the Parliament in Toulouse and they remained friends. In 1636 Carcavi bought an office of counsellor in the Grand Conseil in Paris. In 1648, however, hard times struck and he was forced to sell the office to pay for the debts of his father (who had been a banker). After this he worked for the Duke of Liancourt until 1663. In that year he was appointed Custodian of the Royal Library, a post he held for 20 years until shortly before his death. Carcavi is best known for his correspondence with other mathematicians rather than for his own mathematics. He was friends with Huygens Fermat (as mentioned above) and Pascal and corresponded with them. Fermat sent many of his works to Carcavi after he moved to Paris in 1636. In 1650

Later he had to sell it to pay his father's debts, but I do not see how to doubt that he grew up in circumstances at least affluent. 3. Nationality Birth: French Career: French Death: French 4.

Father Occupation: Merchant His father had a prosperous leather business. He was also second consul (whatever that might have been) of Beaumont. Fermat's uncle and godfather was also a merchant. His mother brought the social status of the parliamentary noblesse de la robe to the family. This certainly says at least affluence. 3. Nationality Birth: French Career: French Death: French 4. Education Schooling: Orleans, LD He received a solid classical secondary education, beginning at the convent of the Cordeliers in Beaumont (run by the Franciscans). After studying with the Franciscans, he then studied with the Jesuits. He may have attended the University of Toulouse. He obtained the degree of Bachelor of Civil Laws from the University of Orleans in 1631. I accept this as the equivalent of a B.A., and in accordance with my practice I list also the degree in law. 5. Religion

Extractions: Pierre Fermat 's father was a wealthy leather merchant and second consul of Beaumont- de- Lomagne. Pierre had a brother and two sisters and was almost certainly brought up in the town of his birth. Although there is little evidence concerning his school education it must have been at the local Franciscan monastery. He attended the University of Toulouse before moving to Bordeaux in the second half of the 1620s. In Bordeaux he began his first serious mathematical researches and in 1629 he gave a copy of his restoration of Apollonius 's Plane loci to one of the mathematicians there. Certainly in Bordeaux he was in contact with Beaugrand and during this time he produced important work on maxima and minima which he gave to Etienne d'Espagnet who clearly shared mathematical interests with Fermat.

For the remainder of his life he lived in Toulouse but as well as working there he also worked in his home town of Beaumont-de-Lomagne and a nearby town of Castres. From his appointment on 14 May 1631 Fermat worked in the lower chamber of the parliament but on 16 January 1638 he was appointed to a higher chamber, then in 1652 he was promoted to the highest level at the criminal court. Still further promotions seem to indicate a fairly meteoric rise through the profession but promotion was done mostly on seniority and the plague struck the region in the early 1650s meaning that many of the older men died. Fermat himself was struck down by the plague and in 1653 his death was wrongly reported, then corrected:-

Extractions: After having researched different philosophical, mathematical, and historical aspects of René Descartes, I have been convinced that the vastness of misunderstanding and differences in interpretations of La Géométrie can be explained by explicating the grounds on which it was written, and the means in which it has been read. It is without question that the work is not understood in the context in which it was intended to be, and that any proper understanding of the work is possible only when considering Descartes reasons for publishing it where and when he did. I aim to show that this is the case in a method such that both mathematicians and philosophers can follow with ease, after only being familiar with key aspects of Descartes Discourse on the Method of Reasoning Well and Seeking Truth in the Sciences Discourse on Method, or Discourse Descartes published the Discourse on Method in 1637. In original form, it was published in French. This fact alone is curious, since learned writings of the time were traditionally in Latin. Even more curious is the fact that Descartes name as author was absent from the work and its appendages in the first edition, and he received nothing for the publication except 200 free copies to distribute amongst his colleagues. Several interpretations of these facts have been made. Many scholars suggest that the
