Pierre Duhem (1861–1916) held the chair of theoretical physics at Bordeaux from 1894 to his dying. He demonstrated a name in either the background and philosophy of technology in addition to in technology itself (physics and actual chemistry). a lot of his paintings within the first parts has been translated into English, yet little of his technical clinical paintings. the current quantity includes early paintings of Duhem’s illustrating his curiosity within the rigorous improvement of actual conception for which he's recognized. It opens with what was once the 1st severe dialogue of Gibbs’ groundbreaking "On the Equilibrium of Heterogeneous components" (1876-8), the place Duhem addressed the matter that, as he placed it, "Mathematicians remorse that the rules of Thermodynamics must have been built commonly with so little precision that an analogous proposition might be seemed by way of a few for this reason, and by way of others as a negation, of those principles". the opposite papers, forming a three-part sequence, pursue this undertaking of placing the principles of thermodynamics on a clearer and safer foundation. This e-book might be of curiosity to students in background and philosophy of technological know-how, specially these attracted to the advance of actual chemistry and the paintings of Pierre Duhem.
