Sažetak
Our text will be divided into two parts. In the first part we will show a (historically) relatively unknown fact of mutual acquaintance between Émilie du Châtelet and Ruđer Bošković. In this part, we will present epistolary and other textual evidence that prove that they at least heard of each other. In the second part of our presentation, we will address the question of their solutions to the problem of vis viva which will be an example of both closeness of their minds and differences of their methods. The background of the vis viva controversy can be understood as a byproduct of different understandings about the essence of the relationship between force and mass. Bošković’s natural philosophy suggests that the fundamental reality was the force that is the fundamental reality of both space and material existence. For Bošković, the interacting and interconnected forces, connected through the point atoms, act as the nexus points, or nodes, of the network that is the fundamental reality of existence. Through this dynamic interpretation of reality of forces, we connect Bošković’s ideas with the ones of Du Châtelet (and Leibniz), which are more widely known and discussed.
