Francis Bacon was the first to grasp the revolutionarv possibilities of man's increasing control over natural forces. His plan for the total reform of society by the application of science to production was the central theme of his life and is the central theme of this book. Professor Farrington traces the basis of Bacon's great idea in contemporary society as well as in the individual home background of Francis Bacon himself. "A brilliant and creative interpretation of all that is most enduring in Bacon's blueprint for the future.". Bookseller Inventory # 9191404
