Memorable Quotations: Francis Bacon
(Kindle Book at Amazon)

Francis Bacon (1561–1626) was an English philosopher, essayist, and statesman. After his disagreement (1584) to Queen Elizabeth I's tax program hindered his political advancement, he was favored by the earl of Essex, whom Bacon later aided to prosecute (1601). Under James I, he progressed from knight (1603) to attorney general (1613) to Lord Chancellor (1618). In 1621 he pleaded guilty to charges of accepting bribes and was fined and banished from office; he spent the remainder of his life writing in retirement. Bacon's best-known writings are his Essays (1597–1625). He proposed a major philosophical work, the Instauratio Magna, but completed only two parts: the Advancement of Learning (1605) later expanded in Latin as De Augmentis Scientarum (1623); and the Novum Organum (1620). His foremost contribution to philosophy was his application of induction, the approach used by modern science, rather than the prior method of medieval scholasticism.
