Abstract [en]

In this paper we critically evaluate Robin Le Poidevin’s recent attempt to set out an argument for the ontological reduction of chemistry independently of intertheoretic reduction. We argue firstly that the argument he envisages applies only to a small part of chemistry, and that there is no obvious way to extend it. We argue secondly that the argument cannot establish the reduction of chemistry, properly so called.
