GROUP 3 MATTER AND THE ATOMIC THEORY 2. PROPERTIES OF THE THREE STATES OF MATTER PHASE CHANGES MATTER 3. • The particulate matter is a well- accepted description of matter.

The basic principles of the particulate model of matter are: a) All matter is made up of tiny particles b) There is empty spaces in between the particles. Chemistry is a scientific discipline with a particular subject matter and history of development, and these have endowed the science with a characteristic range of concepts, theories, and methods.

Philosophy of chemistry is the systematic critical study of these concepts, theories, and methods, and of the interrelations between them. Although the Middle Ages marked a period of decline for the study of natural philosophy in Europe, atomic ideas flourished elsewhere.

During the 11th century, at the height of the Islamic Golden Age, Islamic philosophers attempted to synthesize the Greek and Indian theories into the Asharite school of an interest in atomism was eventually rekindled during the Renaissance.

BC, Akragas, Sicily. In Western Philosophy, Atomism is usually associated with the Greek Pre-Socratic philosopher Democritus, although in reality Democritus's teacher Leucippus (5th Century B.C.) was certainly co-founder of the doctrine, and quite possibly fully responsible for it.

Aristotle explicitly credited Leucippus with the invention of Atomism, although no fragments of his writings survive, and we have only.

Atomism - Atomism - History and major representatives of the various atomisms: From the ancient Greeks through the 16th century, atomism remained mainly philosophical. It is characteristic of the importance of Greek philosophy that, already in the foregoing exposition of the different aspects of atomism, several Greek philosophers had to be introduced.

Chemistry is the study of the structure and transformation of matter. When Aristotle wrote the first systematic treatises on chemistry in the 4 th century BCE, his conceptual grasp of the nature of matter was tailored to accommodate a relatively simple range of observable phenomena.

Maharshi Kanada was ancient Indian scientist, sage and philosopher who founded the philosophical school of Vaisesika and authored the text Vaisesika Sutras or Aphorisms.

He pioneered atomic theory, described dimension, motion, chemical reactions of atoms. Vaisesika Sutras are a blend of science, philosophy and religion. Logical atomism is a philosophy that originated in the early 20th century with the development of analytic principal exponent was the British philosopher Bertrand is also widely held that the early work (the Tractatus and pre-Tractatus writings) of his Austrian-born pupil and colleague, Ludwig Wittgenstein, defend a version of logical atomism.

Aristotle believes that all material substances are matter and you remember from the four causes, matter is one cause and form is another cause. Substance theory says that substances are the ultimate things in the universe. Aristotle defends his position on material substances in his book and form are parts of substances, but they are not parts that you can divide.Materialism is a form of philosophical monism that holds that matter is the fundamental substance in nature, and that all things, including mental states and consciousness, are results of material .Atomic theory, ancient philosophical speculation that all things can be accounted for by innumerable combinations of hard, small, indivisible particles (called atoms) of various sizes but of the same basic material; or the modern scientific theory of matter according to which the chemical elements that combine to form the great variety of substances consist themselves of aggregations of.
