What Happened When Chemists Came to Classify Elements by their Atomic Number?

I respond to Scerri’s recent reply to my claim that there was a scientific revolution in chemistry in the early 20th Century. I grant, as Scerri insists, that there are significant continuities through the change about which we are arguing. That is so in all scientific revolutions. But I argue that the changes were such that they constitute a Kuhnian revolution, not in the classic sense of The Structure of Scientific Revolutions, but in the sense of Kuhn’s mature theory, developed in the 1980s and early 1990s.
