Francis Bacon (1561-1626) was a genuine midwife of modernity. He was one of the first thinkers to visualize a future that would be guided by a cooperative science-based vision of bettering human welfare. In this the first critical edition of his greatest philosophical work since the nineteenth-century, we find facing-page Latin translations and a thorough and detailed Introduction to the text.
