FRANCIS BACON AND THE SCIENTIFIC REVOLUTION


Recommended Posts

Thank you Eric.

I did not know this representation of Bacon's classification,far more appealing than the original one¬†ūüôā.

Here is another Tree of knowledge derived from Bacon's classification.

Encyclop%C3%A9die_-_Tree_of_knowledge.jp

Tree of knowledge, This sets out a genealogical relationship between various arts and sciences; the left, middle, and right branches are influenced by the threefold classification in Francis Bacon's "Advancement of Learning" (1605).

Source : Frontispiece of the 1780 edition of the Encyclopédie.

Author : Chrétien Frederic Guillaume Roth.

Hi Yann. 

Mon Dieu! I don't suppose there is an English translation. There certainly ought to be.
