Discours de réception de M. Lambert comme membre de l'académie. Mémoires de l'Académie royale des sciences de Berlin, année 1765/1767, 506–514.(1)


Lambert's inaugural oration at the Berlin Academy. He promises to devote his forces mostly to the study of experimental physics (especially pyrometry), and then develops a view of how the four classes of the academy (mathematics, experimental physics, history and belles-lettres) are connected to each other.
