CEFISES Seminar: Vanessa Seifert, “Chemical Bonds are Real Patterns”
February 4@14:00-16:00 CET
Series: Metaphysics of Science
This talk will take place remotely, on Zoom. Please contact the organizer at email@example.com if you would like to attend.
Abstract: There is a persisting debate about what chemical bonds are and whether they exist. I argue that chemical bonds are real patterns of interactions between subatomic particles. This proposal resolves the problems raised in the context of existing understandings of the chemical bond and provides a novel way to defend the reality of chemical bonds.
