Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 084767858X, Paperback)

This book rehabilitates the reputation of Francis Bacon as one of the seminal founders of modernity, especially of modern political and economic science. Robert K. Faulkner argues that Baconian concepts have come to underlie a number of the progressive philosophies of the modern world.

The book is clearly written and makes available a wide range of issues concerning the style of Bacon's writings and his politics. Highly recommended to both general and academic libraries at all levels.
