¿Acerca de qué nos habla la química? Nuevos argumentos en favor de la autonomía ontológica del mundo químico

dc.contributor.authorLombardi, Olimpia
dc.description.abstractSi bien la química como disciplina tiene una larguísima historia, los impresionantes éxitos de la mecánica cuántica en el siglo XX han conducido a concebirla como una rama de la física sobre la base de un enfoque netamente reduccionista. El propósito del presente trabajo consiste en abordar el tema de la relación entre química y física tal como ha sido discutido en la reciente filosofía de la química. El objetivo final, en sintonía con artículos previos, es defender la autonomía ontológica del mundo químico desde una perspectiva anti-reduccionista, tomando en consideración ciertas críticas directas a tales trabajos formuladas durante los últimos años.spa
dc.description.abstractenglishAlthough chemistry as a scientific discipline has a very long history, the impressive success of quantum mechanics during the 20th century has led to conceiving it as a branch of physics, on the basis of a markedly reductionist approach. The purpose of the present work consists in facing the issue of the relationship between chemistry and physics as it has been discussed in the present-day philosophy of chemistry. The final goal, in line with previous articles, is to advocate for the autonomy of chemistry from an anti-reductionist perspective, taking into account certain direct criticisms directed to those works during the last yearseng
