The Failure of Reduction and How To Resist Disunity of the Sciences in the Context of Chemical Education.
Scerri, Eric R.
Science and Education, v9 n5 p405-25 Sep 2000
The failure to reduce special sciences such as chemistry to quantum mechanics has produced many responses, including the notion of supervenience and that of the disunity of the sciences. Criticizes these responses and proposes an alternative one, namely the autonomy of chemistry. (Author/SAH)
