Les mathématiques chinoises sont demeurées longtemps mystérieuses, ce livre en détaille l'histoire et montre par exemple que les savants chinois avaient travaillé sur le nombre pi et sur les équations algébriques avant les européens. L'influence du confucianisme, de l'Inde, du monde islamique ou des jésuites sur la pensée mathématique et astronomique chinoise est mise en évidence
The Jesuits, the Padroado and East Asian science (1552-1773) by Conference "History of Mathematical Sciences: Portugal and East Asia III"( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One significant outcome of the missionary efforts of the Society of Jesus was the transmission of some of the mathematical sciences from early modern Europe to East Asia. Following the Padroado (1493-1494), Portugal became the patron of all missions in that part of the world. This book brings together important new data and analyses by a reputed group of science historians on the extent to and ways in which the Jesuits' scientific culture as well as the Portuguese policies regarding education, trade and missions shaped the reception of Western learning in East Asia during the early modern period. Themes analyzed include the teachings at Macau's Jesuit College, Portuguese historians of mathematics and the Society of Jesus and its mathematicians, Eastern and Western astronomy and philosophy, and the role of science both within the Jesuit mission and in the toleration of Christianity in China during the early Qing dynasty

Looking at it from Asia : the processes that shaped the sources of history of science by Florence Bretelle-Establet( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The idea of this volume took shape within a group of scholars working on the history of science in Asia. Despite the great differences in time, locations and disciplines between our respective fields of research, we all faced similar situations: among the huge mass of written documents available to historians and that were eventually taken as sources in the historiography of science, some had been well studied while others had been dismissed or ignored. This observation will seem obvious to historians, whose daily work consists in shaping corpuses to raise new questions. The diagnosis has long
