L'auteur esquisse trois contextes dans lesquels la reputation de James Watt fut discutee : les polemiques concernant les brevets de Watt a la fin du 18e siecle ; les controverses liees au systeme des brevets d'invention au milieu du 19e siecle et les debats developpes a partir de 1820 sur la nature de la science et sa relation avec les progres technologiques.
