Medal Of The Societe Philomathique De Paris

Description:

This is a medal awarded to M Fox by the
SOCIETE PHILOMATHIQUE DE PARISThis Society was
created on 10 December 1788 by Augustin-Francois de
Silvestre, Alexandre Brogniard, Audirac, Broval,
Petit and Riche. It was defined by J.-Andre Thomas,
one of its members, asA high-level multidisciplinary
scientific and philosophical society. One becomes a
member by co-option, then by substitution vote as
the number of members is limited. The Society is
republican, non-secret, and fully open to knowledge,
fiercely independent; it promotes authenticity,
tolerance and freedom.Many great scientists belonged
to the Societe: Lavoisier, Laplace, Cuvier,
Gay-Lussac, Ampere, Cauchy, Fresnel, Pasteur, H.
Becquerel, De Broglie, Joliot. Since 1944, the
Societe has had eleven Nobel Prizes awarded to
scientists among its members, and seventeen to
emeritus members (including Dirac, Heisenberg,
Morgan, and Planck).This illustrious rollcall is
echoed on the obverse of the medal where many of
these names are framed within a laurel wreath.The
reverse bears the name of the society, 1788 the date
of its founding; and the legend: ETUDE ET
AMITIE.Bronze Dia. 42 mm Wgt 35.3 GrAll items are
