Product Description

Review

"The book contains a lot of good information and a fresh look at Bacon's philosophy of science. On first reading, Desroches makes a strong case that Bacon's works have not been properly read by most, including some well-respected philosophers who routinely dismiss Bacon's insights by equating them with "Baconianism," a term which itself should have been more clearly defined or described...The study should be taken seriously, not just by scientists and philosophers, but also by those who use the paradigm concept loosely in many different disciplines." - Willem P. Van De Merwe, Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies, 2008--Sanford Lakoff

About the Author
