Francis Bacon, 1st Viscount St. Alban, Kt, KC, was an English author, philosopher, jurist , scientist, and statesman. He served both as Attorney General and Lord Chancellor of England. Although his political career end-ed in disgrace, he remained extremely influential through his works, especially as philosophical advocate and practi-tioner of the scientific method during the scientific revolu-tion. Bacon has been called the creator of empiricism. His works established and popularised inductive methodolo-gies for scientific inquiry, often called the Baconian meth-od, or simply the scientific method. His demand for a planned procedure of investigating all things natural marked a new turn in the rhetorical and theoretical framework for science, much of which still surrounds con-ceptions of proper methodology today. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
