Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sir Francis Bacon, hailed as the father of experimental science, conceived his Novum Organum or New Organon as a machine for aiding the reason in establishing truth. This is a new translation from Bacon's Latin into readable modern English, equipped with helpful explanatory notes.

Book News Annotation:

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.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
