In 2017 the Center History of Women Philosophers and Scientists and the National of Library of Russia, St. Petersburg, agreed upon a collaborative digital edition of the Du Châtelet manuscripts preserved in the Voltaire Collection of the NLR. Some of these manuscripts – which include a translation of Bernard Mandeville’s Fable of the Bees, annotations to Voltaire’s Traité de Métaphysique, and a short tract on the metaphysics of liberty – were published by Ira O. Wade in his Studies on Voltaire with some Unpublished Papers of Mme du Châtelet (1947), but not all. This course will be dedicated to Du Châtelet’s translation and critical reworking of Mandeville’s Fable of the Bees.
