OCLC Number: 563765243 Marie-Geneviève-Charlotte Darlus Thiroux d'Arconville (1720-1805) was a key figure in a community of elite scientists in early modern Paris. This community was composed of anatomists, physicians, botanists, chemists, and pharmacists, and included Pierre-Joseph Macquer (1718-1784), Bernard de Jussieu (1699-1777), Antoine-Laurent de Lavoisier (1743-1794), Antoine François de Fourcroy (1755-1809), Bernard-Germain de Lacépède (1756-1825), François Poulletier de la Salle (1719-1788), François-Guillaume Rouelle (1703-1770), and Jean-Baptiste Sénac (1693-1770). As the historian Roger Hahn states: "These men composed what was commonly known in the eighteenth century as the 'Republic of Science' referring to the loosely knit community of scientists, most of whom were members of the French Academy of Sciences in the late seventeenth and eighteenth centuries."..
