Example text

In spite of his connections with Blumentrost he was not called as academician to Petersburg, yet he appeared there uninvited, and in September of 1725 he received a contract for five years as a member of the Academy; he became the first permanent secretary of this institution, to the organization of which he contributed significantly. It is today also established that he played a decisive role in the call of Euler. Even though Goldbach is known to most of today’s mathematicians only by virtue of a theorem (more precisely: a conjecture) named after him66 , he should, as a mathematician, not be dismissed with disrespectful handwaving (since “merely an amateur”).

Although the first prize was awarded to the then already famous physicist, astronomer, and geodesist Pierre Bouguer (1698–1758), Euler’s work was cited with an Accessit31 , a sort of second prize, which however he had to share with Ch. E. L. Camus (1699–1768). Highly characteristic of Euler’s attitude toward nature is the proud, final paragraph of this work32 : I did not find it necessary to confirm this theory of mine by experiment, because it is derived from the surest and most secure principles of mechanics, so that no doubt whatsoever can be raised on whether or not it be true and takes place in practice.

Seven equally such minor triads (triangles with base line on the exterior circle). The remaining triads with their much too large thirds are no longer usable. Fig. 2 shows the clear tendency in the organ temperament of Werckmeister to make playable, according to the new needs of baroque music—if only in a limited way—as many triads as possible, and to eliminate the wolf. This comes at the expense of the purity of the large thirds of the good keys in the mediant temperament. There are still triads of different purity.
