    Art, Science and Ideology in 19th-century Advertisement for Liebig's Extract of Meat.Cecilia Molinari de Rennie - 2015 - Hyle: International Journal for Philosophy of Chemistry 21 (1):39-60.
    In this paper I discuss the practices of the production Inventions of the 19th Century, a piece of ephemera from the late 19th centruy belonging to the marketing campaign for Liebig’s Extract of Meat. I approach my corpus from a socio-semiotic perspective, using the tools of Multimodal Discourse Analysis to show how meanings are encoded in the text. On the basis of this description I explore from the perspective of Critical Discourse Analysis the discursive strategies employed by the producers of (...)

    Philosophical Foundations of Stereochemistry.Hirofumi Ochiai - 2015 - Hyle: International Journal for Philosophy of Chemistry 21 (1):1-18.
    Stereochemistry studies molecules and molecular transformations by way of the classical model of the molecule, which envisages molecules as composed of atoms that are linked together by chemical bonds. The underlying hypothesis of this model is that molecules are entities with definite shape and structure, and behave like mechanical objects in the world of possible experience. Such a view of molecules raises questions about the legitimacy of this science because neither shape nor structure is taken any longer as a solid (...)

    Mereology of Quantitative Structure-Activity Relationships Models.Guillermo Restrepo & Harr - 2015 - Hyle: International Journal for Philosophy of Chemistry 21 (1):19-38.
    In continuing with the research program initiated by Llored and Harré of exploring the part/whole discourses of chemistry, we analyse Quantitative Structure-Activity Relationships studies, which are widespread approaches for modeling substances’ properties. The study is carried out by analyzing a particular QSAR model, and it is found that different mereologies are needed: from those regarding bulk substances as wholes and molecular entities as parts and to mereologies where the wholes are molecules whose parts are atoms, structured subsets of atoms, nuclei (...)
