New Narratives in Eighteenth-Century Chemistry
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.
Aims for creating new narratives for understanding the periodProvides studies and analyses of hitherto neglected features of the periodContains analyses and critiques of existing historiography of the period
