    Abstract

    What happened when Enlightenment chemical reformers came face to face with the complex world of artisanal production? How did they gain access to and, eventually, authority over this area of “otherness”? These are the main questions discussed in this paper, which studies an episode in which a young chemist, Johan Gottlieb Gahn, sought to reform existing craft processes.
