"In keeping with the spirit of their times, two writers for the Age of Reason and Enlightenment envisioned their own philosophical and intellectual utopias. Tomasso Campanella, a Calabrian monk, published The city of the sun in 1623, and Francis Bacon's The new Atlantis appeared in 1627. Campanella was a student of logic and physics; Bacon focused on politics and philosophy.

The new organon by Francis Bacon ( )
15 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 1,190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"When The New Organon appeared in 1620, as part of a six-part programme of scientific inquiry entitled 'The Great Renewal of Learning', Francis Bacon was at the high point of his political career, and his ambitious work was groundbreaking in its attempt to give formal philosophical shape to a new and rapidly emerging experimentally based science. Bacon combines theoretical scientific epistemology with examples from applied science, examining phenomena as various as magnetism, gravity and the ebb and flow of the tides, and anticipating later experimental work by Robert Boyle and others. His work challenges the entire edifice of the philosophy and learning of his time, and has left its mark on all subsequent philosophical 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."--Jacket
