$45.00

Sir Francis Bacon is often called the father of the Scientific Method. His contributions to empiricism and natural philosophy have had resounding effects on western thought, permeating in the works of his contemporaries and intellectual descendants alike. Famously quoted as saying, “Knowledge is power,” Sir Francis Bacon wrote extensively on many subjects and used his empiricist framing to guide his political career as well. In this collection of his acclaimed essays, he provides insight on such subjects as truth, death, nobility, atheism and religion, friendship, and love. First published in 1597, these essays are some of the most widely read non-fiction from the era. This collector’s edition by the Easton Press recognizes their significance as part of the 100 Greatest Books Ever Written series. For any collector of philosophy or personal essays, it is an essential volume.
