Quel système de savoir ? Du « jardin des livres » de la bibliothèque du duc Auguste au catalogue de Leibniz

Abstract : The transformation of Duke August’s (1579-1666) practical catalogue (topographical order) to Leibniz’s (1646- 1716) later rational catalogue (alphabetical and systematic order) is discussed by reference to the example of the Wolfenbüttel Library. As illustrations of cataloguing activity between bibliography (book description) and encyclopedia (insertion in a methodical and topical order), the cataloguing practices of Duke August and Leibniz both guide (each in their own way) the reader. But contrary to Duke August’s “humanist” catalogue, Leibniz’s catalogue tends to keep the logic of research independently of the order of knowledge.
