原始语种摘要: In this paper I present an ordered selection of citations from Frantisek Wald's publications and correspondence to give some idea of how he fitted in his times, how his views were received by contemporaries, and to illustrate his epistemological views. I highlight the originality of Wald's aim to develop a theory of chemistry on the basis of the concept of 'phase', instead of the concepts of compound and element. In chemistry (including the material sciences) there has been a vast increase in substances that are phases (and not pure compounds), which makes Wald’s work still relevant.
