Alphonse-Victor Angot, ou encore l'abbé Angot, (10 février 1844, Montsûrs - 1917, Saint-Fraimbault de Lassay), historien Son œuvre est remarquable pour son ampleur, sa méticuleuse précision des monographies composant son dictionnaire, par la rigueur de son esprit synthétique. L’abbé Angot est un historien de très grande qualité, qui a laissé une oeuvre abondante (sa bibliographie compte plusieurs centaines de titres). Sa biographie a été publiée après sa mort (en 1917) par Ernest Laurain, archiviste de la Mayenne. L'épigraphie est l'étude des inscriptions sur des matières non putrescibles, comme la pierre (on parle alors d'inscriptions lapidaires), le métal ou l'argile. Cette science est particulièrement importante pour l'histoire de l'Antiquité, le corpus d'inscriptions gravées étant très important par rapport à ce que nous apportent les sources littéraires. L’épigraphie a pour objet l’étude des inscriptions, c’est-à-dire ce qui "est écrit sur une matière durable." [Référence 5480]. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        La theorie de la physique chez les physiciens contemporains.

      Paris, Alcan, 1907.. Erste Ausgabe. Gr.-8vo. (1) Bl., V, 412 S., II S. (Errata). Originalbroschur. Unaufgeschnittenes Exemplar. Sehr selten. Abel Rey (1873-1940), französischer Philosoph, von "zentraler Bedeutung für die Philosophie der Physik und damit der modernen Philosophie ... Insbesondere auf Philipp Frank hatte Reys Arbeit einen großen Eindruck gemacht ... In seiner Dissertation [die hier vorliegt] wandte sich Rey mit Nachdruck gegen die damals nicht nur in Frankreich populäre These vom Bankrott des traditionellen Mechanismus und des auf ihm aufbauenden physikalischen Weltbildes. Aus dem Scheitern des naiven Mechanismus der Aufklärung folge, so Rey, keineswegs das Scheitern der Wissenschaften ... Was Rey vorschwebte und Frank so begeisterte, war der Versuch, angesichts einer zunehmend relativistischen Physik am Begriff der Objektivität festzuhalten ... Für Rey war erst im Rahmen einer modernen, relationistischen Physik eine sinnvolle Verwendung des Begriffs der Objektivität möglich, da er von metaphysischen Implikationen befreit und an verifizierbare Erfahrungen geknüpft wird. Damit steckte Rey die Grundkoordinaten der wissenschafts-theoretischen Diskussionen der zwanziger Jahre ab. Mit seinem aufklärerischen Geist wurde er stilbildend für den Wiener Kreis ..." (Artikel von A. Grau in FAZ 178 über eine Arbeit von M. Neuber zur Philosophie der modernen Physik).
