Sir Francis Bacon Name Francis Bacon Birth January 22 Death April 9 School/tradition Empiricism Influenced by Democritus Plato Alhazen Roger Bacon Influenced Diderot Hobbes Hume Francis Bacon, 1st Viscount St Alban 22 January 9 April ) was an English philosopher statesman , and essayist . He is also known as a proponent of the scientific revolution . Indeed, according to John Aubrey , his dedication may have brought him into a rare historical group of scientists who were killed by their own experiments. His works established and popularized an inductive methodology for scientific inquiry, often called the Baconian method or simply, the scientific method . In the context of his time such methods were connected with the occult trends of hermeticism and alchemy citation needed . Nevertheless, his demand for a planned procedure of investigating all things natural marked a new turn in the rhetorical and theoretical framework for science, much of which still informs conceptions of proper methodology today.

Francis Bacon came to London in 1925 and although he received no formal art training, he created a sensation in 1945 when he exhibited his Three Studies for Figures at the Base of a Crucifixion (London, Tate Gallery) at the Lefevre Gallery in London. His work was Expressionist in style, and his distorted human forms were unsettling. He developed his personal style and gloomy subject matter during the 1950s, when he achieved an international reputation. Aside from his unpleasant images of corrupt and disgusting humanity, Bacon deliberately subverted artistic conventions by using the triptych format of Renaissance altarpieces to show the evils of man, rather than the virtues of Christ. In Pope Innocent X he reworked a famous portrait by Velazquez into a screaming mask of angst."

Francis Bacon was a famous English essayist, lawyer, philosopher and statesman who had a major influence on the philosophy of science.

Francis Bacon
Francis Bacon was a famous English essayist, lawyer, philosopher and statesman who had a major influence on the philosophy of science. He was born in London in 1561 and died in 1626. At 12 years of age, he entered Trinity College, Cambridge. At age 15, he entered Gray's Inn to pursue a career in law. Bacon was first elected to Parliament in 1584. His opposition to royal tax measures would probably have brought an end to his political advancement, but he had the support of the earl of Essex, whose prosecution for treason he later managed. Knighted (1603) after the succession of James I, Bacon became solicitor-general (1609), attorney-general (1613), lord keeper of the great seal (1617), and lord chancellor (1618); he was also created Baron Verulam (1618), and Viscount St. Albans (1621). Bacon retained James's favor by steadfast defense of royal prerogative, but in 1621 he was found guilty of accepting bribes and was removed from his offices.
Retiring to Gorhambury, he devoted himself to writing and scientific work. Philosophically, Bacon sought to purge the mind of what he called "idols," or tendencies to error. These came from human nature ("idols of the tribe"), from individual temperament and experience ("idols of the cave"), from language ("idols of the market place"), and from false philosophies ("idols of the theater"). Of earlier philosophers, he particularly criticized Aristotle.
Bacon planned a large work, the Instauratio Magna (Great Restoration), setting forth his concepts for the restoration of humankind to mastery over nature but only completed only two parts. Although Bacon was not a great scientist, he gave impetus to the development of modern inductive science. In the 18th century, Voltaire and Diderot considered him the father of modern science. Bacon's works include his Essays (1597-1625) and The New Atlantis (1627).

Francis Bacon Library of Congress [b. London, January 22, 1561, d. London, April 9, 1626] Bacon's main influence on science was his emphasis on developing general laws that apply to observations, laws formed by thoughtfully collecting as many instances as possible and abstracting the laws in a process called induction. As a scientist himself, Bacon was nearly correct in explaining heat, although he reversed cause and effect by suggesting that the expansion of heated materials causes movements of their particles.

    (1620) excerpt on the nature of heat Second Book [from Great Books of the Western World edition] 11. The investigation of forms proceeds thus: a nature being given, we must first present to the understanding all the known instances which agree in the same nature, although the subject matter be considerably diversified. And this collection must be made as a mere history, and without any premature reflection, or too great degree of refinement. For instance; take the investigation of the form of heat.
    Table I. Instances agreeing in the Form of Heat.
  • The rays of the sun, particularly in summer, and at noon.
  • The same reflected and condensed, as between mountains, or along walls, and particularly in burning mirrors.
  • Ignited meteors.
  • Burning lightning
  • Eruptions of flames from the cavities of mountains, etc.
  • Flame of every kind.
  • Ignited solids.
  • Natural warm water baths.
  • Warm or heated liquids.
  • Warm vapors and smoke; and the air itself, which admits a most powerful and violent heat if confined, as in reverberating furnaces.
  • Damp hot weather, arising from the constitution of the air, without any reference to the time of the year.

    Detailed introduction to bacon s life and work includes a look at his role in the scientific community of Elizabethan England.
    Francis Bacon (1561-1626)
    At the same time that he was founding and promoting this new project for the advancement of learning, Bacon was also moving up the ladder of state service. His career aspirations had been largely disappointed under Elizabeth I, but with the ascension of James his political fortunes rose. Knighted in 1603, he was then steadily promoted to a series of offices, including Solicitor General (1607), Attorney General (1613), and eventually Lord Chancellor (1618). While serving as Chancellor, he was indicted on charges of bribery and forced to leave public office. He then retired to his estate where he devoted himself full time to his continuing literary, scientific, and philosophical work. He died in 1626, leaving behind a cultural legacy that, for better or worse, includes most of the foundation for the triumph of technology and for the modern world as we currently know it.
