Editorial Reviews

"...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 prestigiousauthors 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 avision 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
