Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book Key Texts of Johann Wilhelm Ritter (1776-1810) on the Science and Art of Nature contains table of contents and preface. The book deals with the fragment project and the history of chemistry, and considers physics as art. Ritter is preoccupied with history across all scales and disciplines. Keenly aware of the particular moment in which he lives and works, in the wake of the French and the "chemical" Revolutions, he is also fascinated by the development of the sciences from the earliest epochs onward, and how our human perspective shapes our understanding of nature and the universe.

Keywords: fragment project; Johann Wilhelm Ritter
