Francis Bacon (1561-1626) is one of the most important figures of the early modern era. His plan for scientific reform played a central role in the birth of the new science. The essays in this volume offer a comprehensive survey of his writings on science, including his classifications of sciences, his theory of knowledge and of forms, his speculative philosophy, his idea of cooperative scientific research, and the providential aspects of Baconian science. There are also essays on Bacon's theory of rhetoric and history as well as on his moral and political philosophy and on his legacy.

Review:

"...Cambridge Companions have established themselves as the best of their kind, sound and basic, but often breaking new ground so that established scholars cannot ignore them. The volumes on Bacon and Hobbes, edited by Markku Peltonen and Tom Sorell, attain the same high level...includes a notable roster of distinguished experts...includes fine essays...Both books belong on recommended reading lists." Studies in English Literature
