The philosophical elements in the writings of Francis bacon

Radhey Shyam Suman

My paper proposes a philosophical interpretation of Francis Bacon as an example of scientific methodology. His works argues for the possibility of scientific knowledge based only upon inductive reasoning and careful observation of events in nature. Bacon’s books are quite startling in their vision of organized research. His account reminds us of a modern semanticist analyzing the sources of verbal confusion or of a psychologist explaining the origins of irrational prejudice. Bacon was not himself a great scientist or a great philosopher, he was a master of prose exposition where colorful and memorable phrases helped to popularize a new view of science.
