Abstract

“I contend, however, that in each particular natural theory there is only so much real science as there is mathematics,” said Kant years before Lord Kelvin. And with this severe criterion he dismissed the chemistry of his time: “... thus chemistry can never become more than systematic art or an experimental doctrine; it can never become true science.” Chemistry has long since matured beyond Kant’s verdict, with the firm theoretical underpinnings of thermodynamics and atomic theory.
