The Union of Chemistry and Physics: Linkages, Reduction, by Hinne Hettema

By Hinne Hettema

This monograph bargains with the interrelationship among chemistry and physics, and particularly the function performed through quantum chemistry as a conception in among those disciplines. the writer makes use of structuralist method of discover the overlap among the 2 sciences, their theoretical and ontological borrowings in addition to their continuity.

The start line of this booklet is that there's not less than a sort of solidarity among chemistry and physics, the place the aid relation is conceived as a distinct case of this team spirit. notwithstanding, concerns are by no means concluded so easily inside philosophy of chemistry, as major difficulties exist round a couple of middle chemical rules. in particular, one can't take the most obvious good fortune of quantum theories as outright help for a reductive dating. in its place, within the context of a definitely tailored Nagelian framework for aid, sleek chemistry's courting to physics is constitutive. the consequences supplied through quantum chemistry, in partic

ular, have major effects for chemical ontology.

This booklet is perfect for college kids, students and teachers from the sphere of Philosophy of technology, and especially for people with an curiosity in Philosophy of Chemistry and Physics.
