Abstract

The article presents a survey that examined the financial status of men who studied science in France from 1660-1800. During a period of 150 years, the status of scientists soared. The author noted that scientists were considered talented individuals and were given privileges at the Academie Royale des Sciences of Paris. In addition, they were granted state appointments, which included regular duties outside the academy; thereby, boosting their income. The survey also indicated that scientists perceived science as a cultural value and a potential vehicle for the country's development
