    1. In an interweaving between the elements and stories, Primo Levi tells his life. But he chooses episodes to relate carefully and never discusses his children. At the end he tells us, that his writing was only ""partial and symbolic". The man who wrote so much and so tellingly of Auschwitz in If This Is a Man remains a mystery.The greatest mystery of all, to me, was his death. At 67 he fell over the balustrade of the stairs down from the 3rd floor of the house he'd lived in all his life (except wh [...]

    2. Each chapter is named for an element; some chapters are autobiographical, some are essays, some are vignettes of people he knew and their careers in chemistry; two are short stories about metal prospecting and mining with hints of fantasy. Most are autobiographical and through these we learn a bit of his childhood; his boyish fascination with chemistry experiments which grew into his college education and career as a chemist; his puppy loves and courtship and his imprisonment in a labor camp dur [...]

    3. You know how you read a sentence and copy it down because it's so good? In this book, I'd find a sentence, and go to copy it and realize it relied on the one before it, which relied on the one before that for its complete meaning. So I'd copy down whole paragraphs, whole pages, because Primo writes in integrated, seamless blocks of meaning. Which is enviable.Other than that, I want to give Primo a big kiss, buy him a beer, and ride bikes with him in Italy.

    4. Every suicide is like a nail bomb full of vicious questions and the questions don’t care where they land. Why didn’t somebody do something? – there’s one. Surely there must have been signs. Right there is a triple blow delivered to the bereaved partner and immediate family. They’re reeling from the event, then they have to conclude this depression, this malaise, was so acute it blotted out even thoughts of themselves in the suicide’s final minutes. And after that comes the unspoken a [...]

    5. There are so-called inert gases in the air we breathe. They bear curious Greek names of erudite derivation which mean "the New", "the Hidden", "the Inactive", and "the Alien".Thus begins Primo Levi's book of a score or so mini-memoirs. Each of these is named for one of the elements, thus the name of the book. The elements used are in no particular order – not alphabetical, not by atomic number (the ordering of elements in the periodic table). They range from Argon (the first chapter) to Carbon [...]

    6. Chemistry as a metaphor for life. Blurb writers love phrases like that. They are short, succinct and intriguing. But how hard is it to write something that would deliver on such a promise?I had never read anything quite like ‘The Periodic Table’. It more than delivered – it exceeded my expectations. The book is a beautiful marriage of life and science, perfectly accessible to a regular reader. The truth is that anything can be fascinating provided it’s explained by a person truly passion [...]

    7. Сам на себе си сладкодумен Бокачо. Двайсет и един разказа с имена на химични елементи, които звучат много различно, нищо че са автобиографични. "Декамерон", в който правенето на любов е правене на химия, а чумата е фашистката напаст (но не само едното и не само другото). Не знам [...]

    8. The Connotations of the ElementsAll elements have been named in a more or less arbitrary manner: after people, places or mythological characters. To those who named them, if not necessarily us, these names had metaphorical connotations. For non-scientists, this significance might be lost in the scientific haze that befuddles us.One achievement of Primo Levi's novel is to revive the power of the metaphors. Each element he has chosen represents a person, an experience or a story. Each chapter name [...]

    9. I have to admit as I spent most of my science and chemistry lessons staring out the window daydreaming my knowledge of the Periodic Table sucks, Primo Levi has now changed all that. Using each element to fascinating effect in his own experiences, from the classrooms and studies of his youth through fascist Italy to his capture by the Nazi's and ultimate test of the human spirit to rally and remain mentally strong to survive to tell of the aftermath also. The linking of stories to eponymous eleme [...]

    10. Janet Suzman introduces a major new dramatization of Primo Levi's stories about our human relationship with the chemical elements that make up our universe - a book the Royal Institution of Great Britain named 'the best science book ever'. She begins with a short feature about Levi's life and writing, featuring archive interviews with Levi himselfc/programmes/b07kp709Episode 1/11: Vanadium: In the course of his work as a chemist in a paint factory in the 1960s, Primo Levi receives a letter from [...]

    11. Il fascino della chimica e delle sue metaforePrimo Levi iniziò la sua carriera lavorativa dopo la laurea in chimica conseguita nel 1941. Era una persona razionale, concreta, dotata di un approccio e un pensiero lineare che influenzerà successivamente la sua scrittura, iniziata dopo l'esperienza del campo di concentramento.Un chimico, quindi, prima di tutto.Che nel 1975, per raccontare gli episodi più interessanti della propria vita, decise di scrivere una serie di ventuno racconti intitolando [...]

    12. Certo, che avrei cercato l'oro […] per ritrovare il mio mestiere chimico nella sua forma essenziale e primordiale, la «Scheidekunst», appunto, l'arte di separare il metallo dalla ganga.Questa per Primo Levi è l'essenza del mestiere di chimico: separare il metallo dalla ganga. Si potrebbe dire che il compito dello scrittore è lo stesso, e cioè vagliare il caos (la ganga) del vissuto per dargli una forma coerente e tirarne fuori quanto vi si trova di valido (il metallo). Non a caso, Saul Be [...]

    13. “In order for the wheel to turn, for life to be lived, impurities are needed, and the impurities of impurities in the soil, too, as is known, if it is to be fertile. Dissension, diversity, the grain of salt and mustard are needed: Fascism does not want them, forbids them, and that’s why you’re not a Fascist; it wants everybody to be the same, and you are not. But immaculate virtue does not exist either, or if it exists it is detestable.”

    14. La tavola di Mendeleev per comprendere noi stessi e l'universoLa chimica con tutta la sua magia, raccontata attraverso episodi e frammenti della vita di Levi. O forse dovrei dire il contrario: la vita di Levi (o buona parte di essa) raccontata attraverso la chimica. Non so, ma il risultato è uno delle più belle raccolte di racconti e contemporanemente una delle migliori autobiografie mai lette. Tra tutti il racconto più toccante è certamente Ferro con quei ricordi struggenti dell'amicizia co [...]

    15. Finally, an argument in favor of being forced to read books! I hated the beginning of this and fell asleep twice during the first chapter, so I never would've kept on going if I hadn't had to for school. But The Periodic Table got progressively better then finally peaked at the end, as is my personal preference for books. I cried for like twenty minutes after I finished this, though I'm not sure if that had to do more with Primo Levi or with my own lady hormones.In any case, though it took me aw [...]

    16. Преди една седмица прочетох "Периодичната система" и си помислих "Толкова е хубава, че няма да развалям впечатленията си от нея с опити за драскане, за "обобщаване". Обикновено почтително си мълча - след заглавия, които особено много съм харесала.Така се случи обаче, че следва [...]

    17. La mia adolescenza è stata contrassegnata dallo studio della chimica. Ho avuto docenti bravi, precisi, innovativi, umani. Non posso dire altrettanto di quelli delle materie umanistiche che, ancora oggi a scuola, vedo così ottusi nei confronti delle scienze e della tecnologia.Primo Levi è il "prof" che raccontandoci della materia le restituisce dimensione poetica in "UNA conoscenza" che non distingue tra classificazioni artificiose.Tra tutti i brani spesso autobiografici che hanno come titolo [...]

    18. „… светът е голям и има място за всички…“ Когато излезе книгата, не проявих интерес заради химията. Като я прочетох разбрах, че съм я харесала заради химията.Примо Леви пише така, че и „нехимичният“ читател да бъде привлечен към света на химията. Може би чрез качественото [...]

    19. Partiamo dal fondo: in appendice di questo Sistema periodico viene riportata la nota intervista che Philip Roth fece a Primo Levi non più di sette mesi prima della sua morte. In una delle domande lo scrittore americano ricorda le parole usate in "La chiave a stella" riguardo al presentarsi nella persona di Levi di "due anime": quella del chimico e quella dello scrittore, forse troppe per una sola persona, ma così "ben saldate" fra loro da non poterne vedere una netta separazione.La separazione [...]

    20. Primo Levi (1919-1987) was an Italian Jewish chemist who survived Hitler's Holocaust. This is my second time to read a book by him. I read his first novel Survival in Auschwitz (3 stars) last year and I feel in love with it so that I had to make sure that I have this book and If Not Now, When?. These seem to be his trilogy of memoirs directly recalling his experiences in the concentration camps.This book is composed of short stories and annecdotes from before, during and after his life in Auschw [...]

    21. The Periodic Table consists of 21 stories and each story refers to one of the 21 chemical elements. Chemistry was vital in Primo Levi's life. He not only worked as a chemist before and after the war, but it probably also saved him in Auschwitz, where he was selected for work in a laboratory. Chemistry also gave him security, in a world in which he felt himself insecure. The stories give an insight in Primo Levi's life history and in his work as a chemist. There are also a couple of fictional sto [...]

    22. Primo Levy was a chemist, a poet, and a novelist--a man of luminous imagination and spirit, despite his forced descent into darkness as an Italian Jew during World War II. This book is a memoir, with each chapter named after an element culled from the periodic table. In each chapter, Levy's awe for the alchemical power of the chemist shines through. But he has a poet's heart rather than a chemist's sterile exactitude. The opening chapter "Argon" describes how this element is much more common in [...]

    23. Yüzyılın en iyi popüler bilim kitaplarından birisi seçilen bu kitabın popüler bilim kitabı olarak tanımlanması bence pek de doğru olmaz. Bir tür Otobiyografi olarak kitap, bir biliminsanının yaşamındaki önemli bulduğu olayları, bunlarla eşleştirdiği elementler üzerinden anlatıyor.İkinci Dünya Savaşı adı verilen korkunç katliamın mağdurlarından birisi olarak yazar, kitabın ilk bölümünde Yahudilik, İbranice ve Kabala vurgularıyla başta biraz okuru sıksa da [...]

    24. From the Concluding Section of the Book:"The reader, at this point, will have realized for some time now that this is not a chemical treatise: my presumption does not reach so far - 'ma voix est foible, et meme un peu profane.' Nor is it an autobiography, save in the partial and symbolic limits in which every piece of writing is autobiographical, indeed every human work; but it is in some fashion a history. It is - or would have liked to be - a micro-history"The point is made very clear by Primo [...]

    25. I had no idea what to expect. What I got exceeded any expectations--and my greatest expectations.Levi, an Italian Jewish Chemist, managed to get a PhD and stay employed until the Italians initially toppled Mussolini's Fascist government, provoking a Nazi invasion that returned Italy to the Axis, albeit as an occupied territory. Levi and his friends took to the mountains to fight as partisans, but were inexperienced and caught almost immediately. Levi admitted he was a Jew and was transferred to [...]

    26. Although the ‘Periodic Table’ is recognized by the Royal Institute of Britain as ‘the best science book ever written,’ it really not a science book. It’s a memoir, it is philosophy, and it is written by gentle soul. The book arrived with high praise from Bellow, Roth, Calvino and Eco.It came 30 years after Primo Levi’s famous ‘If This is Man’ (or 'Survival in Auschwitz’ in the US) which was written in 1946, almost immediately after his 11 months in Auschwitz. He said he wrote i [...]

    27. Прекрасна, прекрасна книга. Ако стилът на един писател отговаря на личността му, то Примо Леви със сигурност е един скромен, безкрайно интелигентен, чувствителен и непригоден да изпитва омраза човек. Въпреки че историята му стоварва огромното изпитание да е евреин във фаши [...]

    28. Primo Levi may or may not have committed suicide in 1987 and it is all too convenient for myth-makers to say, as Elie Wiesel did, that Levi had died at Auschwitz forty years earlier.However, there is one section of this book - Vanadium - where one understands the possibility of existential despair for Levi, his exchange with a German who was 'on the other side' at Auschwitz.It is not that the German was wholly obtuse and certainly the man knows that bad things were done. By all 'conventional' st [...]

    29. Elogio della chimicaquella solitaria, inerme e appiedata, a misura d’uomo. Quella dei fondatori, che non lavoravano in équipe ma soli, in mezzo all’indifferenza del loro tempo, per lo più senza guadagno, e affrontavano la materia senza aiuti, col cervello e con le mani, con la ragione e la fantasia; quella che rappresenta il ponte fra il mondo delle carte e il mondo delle cose; col suo sapore forte ed amaro, che è poi quello della vita. La tavola periodica consiste in una raccolta di vent [...]
