review description
Descartes' hydrostatic treatise was one of his first text, fruit of his crucial meeting with Isaac Beeckman. In this article, we will analyse how it was conceived and the reasons which leaded Descartes to question some fundamental aspects of Beeckman's Physico-mathematics. This subject is closely connected with the autonomy and implementation of mathematical sciences to typical matters of natural philosophy.
