Novum Organum: With Other Parts of The Great Instaurationby Francis Bacon

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.
