Euler Historica
Certainly, Euler's works were not written in an historical vacuum. They were
tempered by the political and social events of the time, advances in the scientific
community, availability of documents, technological progress, and so on. While it is
impossible to encapsulate the entire 18th century in one source, a number of brief
summaries are given below.
