L'élément chimique dans les écrits et dans les esprits contemporains.

Abstract : The notion of chemical element is of primary importance in chemistry teaching. However its definition may be connected with different approaches: metaphysical, operative or resulting from the atomic theory. A survey of these definitions in encyclopaedias and scholar books is presented. Comparisons are performed between countries and periods. Moreover, the results of a questionnaire concerning these definitions and answered by students are analysed.
