about

The eighteenth century has long been considered critical for the development of modern chemistry, yet many features of the period remain largely unknown or unexplored. This volume details new approaches and topics to build a more complex view of chemical work during the period. Themes include late-phase alchemy, professionalization, chemical education, and the links and relations between chemistry and pharmacy, medicine, agriculture, and geology.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The book consists of nine papers, of which eight focus on topics, themes and subjects that have been neglected in the historiography to date . . It offers a manifesto for all those who believe that the eighteenth century has much more to tell us about the history of chemistry and, more broadly, of science than how to have a revolution and survive it. . it should be required reading for all historians of chemistry . ." (Georgette Taylor, Ambix, Vol. 56 (1), March, 2009)
