  • Le statut intellectuel de la Royal Society de Londres au milieu du 18e siecle a toujours ete une source de controverse dans la recherche d'information et l'exploration historique. Auparavant, les historiens ont identifie le declin general de la societe dans les decennies qui ont suivi la mort en 1727 de l'un de ses plus prestigieux president, Sir Isaac Newton. Le but de cet article est d'examiner les luttes internes entre Martin Folkes, John Hill et le docteur William Stukeley.
