    Electronegativity and its Multiple Faces: Persistence and Measurement.Klaus Ruthenberg & Juan Camilo Martínez González - 2017 - Foundations of Chemistry 19 (1):61-75.
    Electronegativity is a quantified, typical chemical concept, which correlates the ability of chemical species to attract electrons during their contact with other species with measurable quantities such as dissociation energies, dipole moments, ionic radii, ionization potentials, electron affinities and spectroscopic data. It is applied to the description and explanation of chemical polarity, reaction mechanisms, other concepts such as acidity and oxidation, the estimation of types of chemical compounds and periodicity. Although this concept is very successful and widely used, and in (...)

    Paneth, Kant, and the Philosophy of Chemistry.Klaus Ruthenberg - 2009 - Foundations of Chemistry 11 (2):79-91.
    Immanuel Kant has built up a dualistic epistemology that seems to fit to the peculiarities of chemistry quite well. Friedrich Paneth used Kant’s concept and characterised simple and basic substances which refer to the empirical and to the transcendental world, respectively. This paper takes account of the Kantian influences in Paneth’s philosophy of chemistry, and discusses pertinent topics, like observables, atomism and realism.

    Chemistry is pluralistic.Klaus Ruthenberg & Ave Mets - forthcoming - Foundations of Chemistry:1-17.
    Recently, philosophers have come forth with approaches to chemistry based on its actual practice, imparting to it a proper aim and character of its own. These approaches add to the currently growing movement of pluralist philosophies of science. We draw on recent pluralist accounts from chemistry and analyse three notions from modern chemical practice and theory in terms of these accounts, in order to complement the so far more general pluralist approaches with specific evidence. Our survey reveals that the concept (...)

    Das Kant'sche Echo in Paneths Philosophie der Chemie.Klaus Ruthenberg - 2010 - Kant-Studien 101 (4):465-479.
    The eminent radiochemist Friedrich Paneth tried to come to terms with the following epistemological problem: On the one hand chemical elements are characterized empirically as indestructible material species, on the other hand they are characterized theoretically as having the same number of protons in the nuclei of their atoms. Paneth used the dualistic Kantian epistemology in order to describe the combination of these two aspects, applying the terms “Grundstoff”, fundamental matter, to the latter and “einfacher Stoff”, simple matter, to the (...)

    Philosophy of Chemistry as Intercultural Philosophy: Jaap van Brakel. [REVIEW]Klaus Ruthenberg & Rom Harré - 2012 - Foundations of Chemistry 14 (3):193-203.
    After a brief biography of Jaap van Brakel we set out his appropriation and use of the distinction between the manifest image and the scientific image of the world. In a certain sense van Brakel gives priority to the manifest image as the ultimate source of meaning in chemical discourses. He does not take sides in the debate about nominal and real essences, twin earths and so, but presents a compromise. As an active practitioner of the chemical arts he emphasises (...)
