Philosophy of Chemistry

7–10 August 2012, Leuven, Belgium

The International Society for the Philosophy of Chemistry (ISPC)—Summer Symposium 2012 will be held from 7–10 August 2012 at the campus of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium.

The symposium aims to provide a forum for discussion about foundational, epistemological, methodological, and ontological problems of chemistry and its subfields by bringing together leading researchers and young scholars from all over the world.

Issues debated in the philosophy of chemistry emerge from three communities: the chemists reflecting on the foundations of their science, the philosophers of science investigating the nature and specifics of chemistry, and the historian of chemistry making sense of the pathways to discoveries and the practices of chemistry in the past.

At this stage, the general framework of the conference and the session topics include:

  • Atoms in Molecules
  • Reflections on Symmetry in Chemistry
  • The Nature of the Chemical Bond
  • The Role of Structure in Chemistry
  • Ethical Aspects of Chemistry
  • Philosophical Attitudes of Past Chemists
  • Sustainable Chemistry
  • The Social Perception and Understanding of Chemistry

Since the International Conference on the Periodic Table will be held four days after this symposium, no sessions will be devoted to the periodic system.
