Résumé

Parmi les écrits consacrés à la réflexion des rayons « visuels» et solaires sur les différents miroirs, il en existe deux, qui ont précédé bien d'autres, et qui occupent une position centrale dans l'histoire de la catoptrique : l'un est attribué à Euclide, l'autre à Ptolémée. À ces deux noms, on en ajoute un troisième jusqu'ici inconnu, Thiasos. Dans cet article, nous reprenons l'histoire textuelle et conceptuelle de cette tradition de recherche catoptrique.

Abstract

Abstract

Among the writings devoted to the reflection of “visual” and solar rays on various mirrors, there are two that preceded many others and that occupy a central position in the history of catoptrics: one is attributed to Euclid, the other to Ptolemy. To these two names, we add a third, hitherto unknown, Thiasos. In this article, we take up the textual and conceptual history of this catoptric research tradition.
