About the Authors
  • Francis Bacon's New Organon, published in 1620, was revolutionary in its attempt to give formal philosophical shape to a new and rapidly emerging experimental science. It challenged the entire edifice of the philosophy and learning of Bacon's time, and left its mark on all subsequent discussions of scientific method. This volume presents a new translation of the text into modern English by Michael Silverthorne, together with an introduction by Lisa Jardine that sets the work in the context of Bacon's scientific and philosophical activities.

    • Lively introduction by Lisa Jardine, author of the recent acclaimed biography of Bacon
    • New translation of the text into modern English
    • Useful notes on further reading

    Reviews & endorsements

    "The importance of this work is evident...the Cambridge edition does a respectable job at striving for both accuracy and readability. I would recommend this edition of Bacon's New Organon for use in survey and/or mid-level courses dealing with the development of seventeenth-century philosophy and science." Teaching Philosophy
