Book Description
Bacon, founder of modern inductivism and prophet of the industrial revolution, reveals a debt to antiquity in these polished Essays. The text of this volume is that of Bacon's second revised and enlarged edition of 1625. On subjects ranging among state policy, personal conduct and the appreciation of nature, Bacon transcends the brute force of scholastic logic and the abstractions of modern philosophy.
