  1. George B. Kauffman (forthcoming). Eric Scerri: A Tale of 7 Elements. Foundations of Chemistry:1-4.
    The iconic status of the periodic table of the elements has been recognized by a variety of prominent chemists and historians of science. For example, John Emsley proclaimed: “As long as chemistry is studied there will be a periodic table. And even if someday we communicate with another part of the universe, we can be sure that one thing that both cultures will have in common is an ordered system of the elements that will be instantly recognizable by both intelligent (...)

  3. George B. Kauffman (forthcoming). Ulf Lagerkvist: Erling Norrby (Ed.): The Periodic Table and a Missed Nobel Prize. Foundations of Chemistry:1-3.
    The “story behind the story” of the genesis of this book is an involved and fascinating one. In May the Sven and Dagmar Salén Foundation decided to give a grant to Ulf Lagerqvist (1926–2010) to permit publication of his manuscript titled The Bewildered Nobel Committee by the World Scientific Publishing Company (WSPC). This decision was based on a thorough review by Torbjörn Norin, Professor of Organic Chemistry at the Royal School of Technology (Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan, KTH) in Stockholm and a (...)

  4. George B. Kauffman (2014). Eric R. Scerri: The Periodic Table: A Very Short Introduction. Foundations of Chemistry 16 (2):171-172.
    A quick question! Who’s the first name that comes to mind when the periodic table is mentioned? Dmitrii Ivanovich Mendeleev is the obvious and universal answer. And the second name? Most of you would probably agree with my answer: Eric R. Scerri, Lecturer in Chemistry and History and Philosophy of Science at the University of California, Los Angeles, and founding editor of this journal, devoted to the philosophy of chemistry, another of his specialties.Through the years I have followed Scerri’s work (...)
