Antoine Lavoisier: The Next Crucial Year or The Sources of His Quantitative Method in Chemistry
Frederic Lawrence Holmes. The chemist Antoine Lavoisier (1743-1794) implemented a principle that many regard as the cornerstone of modern science: in every operation there is an equal quantity of material before & after the operation. The origin of Lavoisier’s methods, however, has remained a missing piece in scientific history. Here, Holmes suggests that Lavoisier gradually came to understand the nature & power of his quantitative method during the year 1773, when he began to carry out a research program on the fixation & release of airs. Holmes presents a portrait of a scientist whose innovative experiments would make him the leader of one of the great upheavals in the history of science. He follows Lavoisier day by day at work in his lab over a course of several months.
