preprint

ϕ for philosophy, χ for chemistry. Is there a connection? Is there any interaction? Do chemists have something useful to learn from philosophers? Do philosophers from chemists? How can we define if chemistry is a science, or at least trustworthy? Which disciplines, styles and personalities are progressive in chemistry? Which ones are truth-seekers, progress-seekers or profit-seekers? Is there a point in asking these questions? Is there even an answer to them?
