Francis Bacon

Leaders of the Scientific Revolution

A key figure in the Scientific Revolution, Francis Bacon laid the foundations for the modern scientific method by stressing the importance of gathering data and testing results. Aspects of three works are examined for their contributions to science: The Advancement of Learning, Novum Organum, and New Atlantis. A final chapter—especially relevant in the light of the current environmental crisis—looks at Bacon's notion that man should use all of nature for his benefit. This volume can be easily integrated into a science, social studies, or English curriculum and used to promote Common Core State Standards for critical thinking.
