Editorial Reviews

Review


"...they have achieved a rare collaboration of effort between a chemist and a philosopher, to examine what lies at the intersection of these two fields, and the philosophy of chemistry is the richer for it. Bhushan and Rosenfeld have put together a collection by some of the most prestigious authors in this newly emerging field, whose prior work has been spread over numerous journals and other venues that were rarely devoted singly to the philosopher of chemistry. For this alone the book is commendable...it goes beyond collecting work that has already been done and seeks to provide a vision for the discipline...Here the reader gains full appreciation for how the neglect of philosophical concern with chemistry might have implications...perhaps even changing what we conceive the field of the philosophy of science to be about." --The Philosophical Review

Format: Hardcover
Let me be the first to congratulate Nalini Bhushan and the late Stuart Rosenfeld on editing a new anthology just published by Oxford University Press and entitled Of Minds and Molecules.
They have assembled together a very interesting and diverse collection of articles on the subject of philosophy of chemistry. Their editorial introduction and introduction to the field is excellent as are many of the articles written by philosophers, chemists and educators.
At the end of the day you can have international conferences, web servers, new journals, internet journals and special issues but what really defines a field is still one slim monograph which collects together, in a coherent and inter-related fashion, all the modern themes being studied.
This is the book which will define the field. If you have even a passing interest in history and philosophy of chemistry you need to own this book.

Very interesting book. Useful for a teacher who wants to give more than all the established in a school program of chemistry. Actually, the philosophy of chemistry plays an important role not only for the study of chemistry in itself as an experimental science but also as an element of motivation for researching.
