A definitive study of the great "philosopher of industrial science". Dr. Farrington pinpoints Bacon as the first man to grasp the revolutionary possibilities of man's increasing control over natural forces. The author sees Bacon's plan for the total reform of society by the application of science to production as the central theme of his life.
