Established by early-career researchers with a shared research interest in history and philosophy of chemistry, Jargonium showcases short essays on chemistry and alchemy from the perspective of humanities. Our objective is to show that chemistry is a source of insight not only for those inherently curious about oxidation states, but for anyone with an interest in philosophy, history, art, sociology, or any other facet of humanistic inquiry. Together with our contributors, we show how looking at chemistry gives rise to reflections that often extend the chemical realm.
We would be more than happy to accept contributions from anyone interested in chemistry! If you wish to share with us your ideas, feel free to contact us at
