Overview

Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.

This entirely new classroom edition of Francis Bacon's great work of 1620, a founding document of empiricism and the scientific method, contains a new introduction and notes by translators/editors Urbach and Gibson. Index.

Editorial Reviews

The editors supply a substantial introduction and explanatory notes to this translation of Bacon's work in which he attempts to steer science into taking account of observation (rather than reliance on tradition and authority) and offers some methods for establishing truth.

Meet the Author

Many argue that Bacon's work was instrumental in the historical development of the scientific method. It is undeniable that his technique bears a resemblance to the modern formulation of the scientific method in the sense that it is centered on experimental research. Bacon's emphasis on the use of artificial experiments to provide additional observances of a phenomenon can often support the conclusion that Bacon's process and the scientific method are one, but Bacon himself should not be considered "the Father of the Experimental Philosophy."Rees, Graham and Maria Wakely The Instauratio magna Part II: Novum organum and Associated Texts.
