How Mendeleev issued his predictions: comment on Andrea Woody

Chris Campbell, Karoliina Pulkkinen
2020 Foundations of Chemistry: Philosophical, Historical, Educational and Interdisciplinary Studies of Chemistry  
Here we offer an explanation on how Mendeleev used his periodic system to predict both physical and chemical properties of little-known and entirely unknown chemical elements.  ...  In particular, by using the known properties of a number of near neighbours of the three entirely unknown elements (the so-called eka-elements), we seek to show how the very format of his table enabled  ...  Acknowledgements We should like to thank Vanessa Seifert for her very helpful and insightful comments to an earlier draft of this paper and an anonymous reviewer who provided a number of valuable suggestions  ...

Missing Elements and Missing Premises: A Combinatorial Argument for the Ontological Reduction of Chemistry

R. Le Poidevin
2005 British Journal for the Philosophy of Science  
But supposing that kind of reduction⎯'epistemological reduction'⎯to be impossible, the thesis of ontological reduction may still be true: that chemical properties are determined by more fundamental properties  ...  If this means 'Can we derive the laws of chemistry from the laws of physics?', recent discussions suggest that the answer is 'no'.  ...  Granted that the gaps in Mendeleev's table represented genuine possibilities, elements that could exist, why assume that the possibilities were realized?  ...

of mind and the philosophy of social science.  ...  The philosophy of chemistry has been sadly neglected by most contempory literature in the philosophy of science.  ...  The name of these elements derives from their extreme reluctance to enter into chemical combination with other elements, a fact which led some chemists to suggest that they did not even belong in the periodic  ...

The Art of the Periodic Table

Tami I. Spector
2017 Leonardo: Journal of the International Society for the Arts, Sciences and Technology  
The periodic table has become an object of nostalgia that has been commodified, including as a multitude of posters that substitute the chemical elements with common objects (the Periodic Table of Vegetables  ...  Looking forward from Mendeleev's remarkable ordering of the table by atomic weight, the table has been reinscribed to accommodate new elements, atomic numbers, electron configurations and quantum mechanics  ...

Boundaries in Reality [chapter]

Tuomas E. Tahko
2013 Classifying Reality  
The aim of this paper is to demonstrate that none of these objections succeed in undermining the existence of genuine joints in reality.  ...  The thrust of these arguments is that the manner in which we structure, divide or carve up the world is not grounded in any natural, genuine boundaries in the world.  ...  Consider an example: Mendeleev's periodic table.  ...

Possibility Precedes Actuality

Tuomas E. Tahko
2022 Erkenntnis: An International Journal of Scientific Philosophy  
I will also illustrate how the framework can be put to use with a case study concerning the discovery of transuranic elements.  ...  This slogan has both an ontological and an epistemic reading. The ontological reading is related to the now familiar idea that essence grounds modality, as popularised by Kit Fine.  ...  Actually, we could go further into the past and consider Mendeleev's work, who made several predictions based on his periodic table of elements.  ...

A cloud resource management model for the creation and orchestration of social communities

2015 Simulation modelling practice and theory  
The formal encoding of C2A validates its assumptions, enabling formal execution and analysis of context based interactions that are derived using C2A principles.  ...  Specific aspects of spontaneity, non-determinism and dynamic interaction share a metaphorical resemblance to chemistry, chemical reactions and solutions.  ...  The CPT borrows its structure from Mendeleev's periodic table [40] that serves as the basis of chemistry.  ...

Concepts of rational taxonomy in biology

I. Ya. Pavlinov
2011 Biology Bulletin Reviews  
Two forms of rationality are distinguished: ontological and epistemological.  ...  Problems related to the development of concepts of rational taxonomy and rational classifications (taxonomic systems) in biology are discussed.  ...  Classification, as in the case of chemical elements, takes the shape of a table showing the periodic law of diversity of biologic archetypes-elements.  ...
