Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

2 Scopus citations


Eugen Dühring was a controversial political scientist that constructed a socialist metaphysical system uniting naturalism with a priori principles. His political views were characterized by extremism; he was racist, chauvinist, antiSemitic, and antiacademic institutions. Although his major activities were in politics, he did contribute some important works in physics and thermodynamics and left us with the well-known Dühring's rule correlating the boiling point of a solution with that of the pure solvent.
