Objects of Chemical Inquiry

Leading historians of chemistry present fascinating case studies illuminating a broad array of objects of inquiry in modern chemistry, from the eighteenth century until today. These include every day items such as glass as well as invisible networks of experimentation and theory.

This collection of essays is based on two workshops that took place at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin and the CHF in Philadelphia.
