Letters on Newton
from the Letters on the English or Lettres Philosophiques, c. 1778
Introduction Letter XIV : On Descartes And Sir Isaac Newton A Frenchman who arrives in London, will find philosophy, like everything else, very much changed there. He had left the world a plenum, and he now finds it a vacuum. At Paris the universe is seen composed of vortices of subtile matter; but nothing like it is seen in London. In France, it is the pressure of the moon that causes the tides; but in England it is the sea that gravitates towards the moon; so that when you think that the moon should make it flood with us, those gentlemen fancy it should be ebb, which very unluckily cannot be proved. For to be able to do this, it is necessary the moon and the tides should have been inquired into at the very instant of the creation. You will observe farther, that the sun, which in France is said to have nothing to do in the affair, comes in here for very near a quarter of its assistance. According to your Cartesians, everything is performed by an impulsion, of which we have very little notion; and according to Sir Isaac Newton, it is by an attraction, the cause of which is as much unknown to us. At Paris you imagine that the earth is shaped like a melon, or of an oblique figure; at London it has an oblate one. A Cartesian declares that light exists in the air; but a Newtonian asserts that it comes from the sun in six minutes and a half. The several operations of your chemistry are performed by acids, alkalies and subtile matter; but attraction prevails even in chemistry among the English.

Chiamo grandi uomini tutti coloro che si sono distinti nell’utile o nel dilettevole. I saccheggiatori di provincia non sono altro che eroi." Francois Marie Arouet (1694-1778)
Nasce a Parigi da famiglia borghese; studia presso un collegio di gesuiti, si dedica, per volere del padre, a studi giuridici e diviene magistrato. Precocissimo poeta, frequenta i circoli letterari ove si fa notare per la sua vivacissima intelligenza. Nel 1716 viene esiliato e successivamente incarcerato alla Bastiglia perchè aderisce a correnti intellettuali contrarie alla corona. Inizia in carcere la sua lunga carriera di scrittore, abbandona il proprio nome assumendo quello di Voltaire. Riappacificatosi con il reggente viene nominato diplomatico, inizia così un lungo periodo di viaggi fino a quando verrà nuovamente esiliato in Inghilterra dove diventerà grande ammiratore delle istituzioni politiche parlamentari.
Qui incontra il pensiero di Locke e di Newton e si apre ai problemi filosofici, scientifici e religiosi di quegli anni.

Letters on the English or Lettres Philosophiques, c. 1778
Introduction Francois-Marie Arouet, known by his assumed name of Voltaire, was born at Paris, November 21, 1694. His father was a well-to-do notary, and Francois was educated under the Jesuits in the College Louis-le-Grand. He began writing verse early, and was noted for his freedom of speech, a tendency which led to his being twice exiled from Paris and twice imprisoned in the Bastile. In 1726 he took refuge in England, and the two years spent there had great influence upon his later development. Some years after his return he became historiographer of France, and gentleman of the king's bedchamber; from 1750 to 1753 he lived at the court of Frederick the Great, with whom he ultimately quarreled; and he spent the last period of his life, from 1758 to 1778, on his estate of Ferney, near Geneva, where he produced much of his best work. He died at Paris, May 30, 1778.

Fan page with sound samples (1987 and newer).
A B RIEF H ISTORY: Cabaret Voltaire (CV) started out in the mid-70's as industrial noise outfit. There was a brief industrial-disco phase for CV in the the mid-80's, followed by house. At the dawn of a new decade, Cabaret Voltaire, now Stephan Mallinder and Richard H. Kirk, started to ease from techno/bleep into trance/ambient. The results were quite startling and Cabaret Voltaire finally regained the attention they deserved. At the height of the trance/ambient wave, Cabaret Voltaire parted ways. While Mallinder went off to Australia to study, Kirk continues on with solo projects (Richard Kirk, Sandoz, etc).

Cabaret voltaire Dada Zurich. In the same narrow alley, Spiegelgasse 14, where the Cabarat voltaire played, lived a certain Mister Uljanow aka Lenin.
Cabaret Voltaire : Dada Zurich In 1915 - at the beginning of World War I - Hugo Ball (writer and theatre director) came with his female partner Emmy Hennings (dancer and chanteuse) from Munich to Zurich. Hugo Ball:
I didn't love the death-hussars,
And not the howitzers with girls' names,
And at the end when the great days came,
I went discreetly away.
On Saturday February 3, 1916 was the inauguration of the Cabaret or 'artist-tavern' Voltaire located at Spiegelgasse 1 in Zurich. Hugo Ball made an agreement with the owner of the tavern 'Meierei' to use the backroom for a literary cabaret and to increase the sale of beer, sausages and sandwiches. An evening with music, dance, manifestos, theory, poems, pictures, masks and costumes presented by Hugo Ball, Emmy Hennings, Marcel Janco, Tristan Tzara, Georges Janco and Hans Arp. The placard for this event was made the ukrainian painter Marcel Slodki. Despite of World War I, the atmosphere in Zurich was very liberal. In the same narrow alley, Spiegelgasse 14, where the Cabarat Voltaire played, lived a certain Mister Uljanow aka Lenin.
The authorities were much more suspicious about the chaotic dadaists than of these quiet, studios Russians ...

Voltaire , reçue à la Comédie-Française en 1718, suivie de Mariane , en 1724, une épopée, la Ligue en 1723 qui deviendra la Henriade en 1728, et de nombreux poèmes satiriques. Trois années d'exil en Angleterre lui permettent de découvrir non seulement une liberté de pensée, morale et politique, dont il va adopter les principes, mais aussi une littérature nouvelle et un théâtre dégagé des règles qui entravent la tragédie française. Les quatre années qui suivent son retour en France en 1730 sont d'une grande fécondité : des tragédies ( Brutus la Mort de César Euryphile Zaïre Adélaïde de Guesclin ), un essai de critique littéraire, le Temple du Goût , un ouvrage historique, l'Histoire de Charles XII , et surtout les Lettres anglaises ou Lettres philosophiques , qui exaltant les découvertes politiques et philosophiques faites en Angleterre, constituent une critique de la religion officielle et s'attirent une condamnation à l'exil. Il s'installe à Cirey, chez son amie M me du Châtelet de 1734 à 1744. Dans cette retraite mondaine où le rejoignent disciples et admirateurs, Voltaire écrit beaucoup :

atteste par serment. (Note 5) Cependant cette famille eut encore quelques ennemis, car il s'agissait de religion. Plusieurs personnes, qu'on appelle en France (Note 6) , dirent hautement qu'il valait mieux laisser rouer un vieux calviniste innocent que d'exposer huit conseillers de Languedoc à convenir qu'ils s'étaient trompés: on se servit même de cette expression: "Il y a plus de magistrats que de Calas"; et on inférait de là que la famille Calas devait t être immolée à l'honneur de la magistrature. On ne songeait pas que l'honneur des juges consiste, comme celui des autres hommes, à réparer leurs fautes. On ne croit pas en France que le pape, assisté de ses cardinaux, soit infaillible: on pourrait croire de même que huit juges de Toulouse ne le sont pas. Tout le reste des gens sensés et désintéressés disaient que l'arrêt de Toulouse sera t cassé dans toute l'Europe, quand même des considérations particulières empêcheraient qu'il fût cassé dans le conseil.
