Summary: English chemist Robert Boyle, a major figure in the scientific revolution of the seventeenth century, was the first prominent scientist to perform controlled experiments and to publish his work with elaborate details concerning procedure, apparatus, and observations. This classic of scientific reporting, published in 1661, is the best known of his many works. In it, Boyle defines the term "element," asserting that all natural phenomena can be explained by the motion and organization of primary particles. A dialogue concerning the nature and number of the elements, this exchange of viewpoints among ancient and contemporary men of science includes a figure representing Boyle's opinions. A major contribution to scientific knowledge, the work deserves a place of prominence in the personal archives of chemistry students, teachers, and professionals in the field.
