Présentation de l'éditeur
The following computer-generated description may contain errors and does not represent the quality of the book.
Feaicis Bacoi md his Secret Society, Chapter I. Introductory. Read, not to contradict and confute, nor to believe and take for granted, nor to find talk and discourse; but to weigh and consider. The object with which this book has been written Is to invite attention and help in clearing some obscurities, and answering some difficult questions, which have lately presented themselves, in the course of a close investigation into the works and aims of Francis Bacon and his friends. Although, for the sake of brevity, propositions are here stated rather than argued, it must not be thought that such statements are dogmatic, or that the conclusions drawn by the writer are intended to be forced upon others. So far as is possible, facts have been distinguished from conjectures, suggestions, or inferences. Nevertheless, since, to most minds, it is helpful to learn what general conclusions have resulted from certain disconnected items of evidence, such conclusions as have been reached are frankly offered, and will readily be withdrawn, if proof or stronger evidence should be forthcoming on the contrary side. Let those who peruse these pages regard them only as the faint rays of a lamp of inquiry, which may guide others, stronger and more capable, to come forward and work, till this mine of truth shall be thoroughly explored, and its treasures brought to the surface.This book is a reproduction of an important historical work.

Biographie de l'auteur
Francis Bacon, 1st Viscount St. Alban, Kt, KC, was an English author, philosopher, jurist , scientist, and statesman. He served both as Attorney General and Lord Chancellor of England. Although his political career end-ed in disgrace, he remained extremely influential through his works, especially as philosophical advocate and practi-tioner of the scientific method during the scientific revolu-tion. Bacon has been called the creator of empiricism. His works established and popularised inductive methodolo-gies for scientific inquiry, often called the Baconian meth-od, or simply the scientific method. 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 surrounds con-ceptions of proper methodology today.
