What Philosophers Can Learn from Chemistry



Chemistry deserves more philosophical attention not so much to do justice to a long-neglected science but to undermine a number of taken-for-granted assumptions about scientific rationality and more importantly to diversify our metaphysical views of nature and reality. Because over the course of many centuries chemists have developed a special access to nature and a special way of investigating and dealing with material substances, they have confronted a number of epistemological and ontological issues that are worth discussing.
