Abstract

The main objective of this article is to review literature in order to show how history and philosophy of science (HPS) is already ‘inside’ chemistry and we do not have to wait or ask for its inclusion in the curriculum. Examples are provided from the topics of atomic structure, kinetic theory, covalent bond, and the law of multiple proportion, to illustrate how an HPS perspective can facilitate students’ conceptual understanding.
