Xtlantis with This Book. The end of our foundation is the knowledge of causes, and secret motions of things; and the enlarging of the bounds of human empire, to the effecting of all things possible. New Atlantis is a Utopia ruled by scientist-kings, viz. Bacon’s vision is awe-inspiring, in both senses of the word. On the one hand, it is mind-boggling to ponder the vast unrealized but distinctly real potential of human knowledge and consequent power.
On the other hand, The end of our foundation is the knowledge of causes, and secret motions of things; and the enlarging of the bounds of human empire, to the effecting of all things possible.
Jeni the other hand, it is awful how such immense power might be abused by people without any moral compass, to deceive, yenj and destroy on a cosmic scale. Bacon anticipates not only many bafon the achievements in modern science and technology, but also the imaginations of science fiction and fantasy writers.
Read full review at https: A very abcon read, the New Atlantis provides an excellent glimpse at the future of academia. It is quite interesting to understand Sir Francis Bacon’s idea of a Utopian society and compare it with a mainstream notion from a Western perspective of a modern Utopia Its a wonder how man can change Gods words so much.
It might have been harder living in those days but everyone was closer to God. The church itself is destroying us. This is a great book a must read. The list of “inventions” that were know to the New Ztlantis Decipher the early 17th century talantis and he’s talking about helicopters, submarines, genetic engineering, and freakin’ nuclear powerto name a few. These we call merchants of light.

After his death, he remained extremely influential through his works, especially as philosophical advocate and practitioner of the scientific method during the scientific revolution. Bacon has been called Francis Bacon, 1st Viscount St Alban, QC, was an English philosopher, statesman, scientist, jurist, orator, essayist, and author. Bacon has been called the creator of empiricism. His works established and popularised inductive methodologies for scientific inquiry, often called the Baconian method, or simply the scientific method.
His demand for a planned procedure of investigating all things natural marked a new turn in the rhetorical and theoretical framework for science, much of which still surrounds conceptions of proper methodology today.
Bacon was knighted in being the first scientist to receive a knighthoodand created Baron Verulam in and Viscount St. Bacon’s ideas were influential in the s and s among scholars, in particular Sir Thomas Browne, who in his encyclopaedia Pseudodoxia Epidemica —72 frequently adheres to a Baconian approach to his scientific enquiries.
In Voltaire “introduced him as the “father” of the scientific method” to a French audience, an understanding which had become widespread by In the 19th century his emphasis on induction was revived and developed by William Whewellamong others. He has been reputed as the “Father of Experimental Science”. Bacon is also considered because of his introduction of science in England to be the philosophical influence behind the dawning of the Industrial age.
In his works, Bacon stated “the explanation of which things, and of the true relation between the nature of things and the nature of the mind, is as the strewing and decoration of the bridal chamber of the mind and the universe, out of which marriage let us hope there may spring helps to man, and a line and race of inventions that may in some degree subdue and overcome the necessities and miseries of humanity” meaning he hoped that through the understanding of mechanics using the Scientific Method, society will create more mechanical inventions that will to an extent solve the problems of Man.
This changed the course of science in history, from a experimental state, as it was found in medieval ages, to an experimental and inventive state — that would have eventually led to the mechanical inventions that made possible the Industrial Revolutions of the following centuries.
He also wrote a long treatise on Medicine, History of Life and Death, with natural and experimental observations for the prolongation of life.

And therefore there are with you seen infinite men that marry not, but chose rather a libertine and impure single life, than to be yoked in marriage; and many that do marry, marry late, when the prime and strength of their years is past.
And when they do marry, what is marriage to them but a very bargain; wherein is sought alliance, or portion, or reputation, with some desire almost indifferent of issue; and not the faithful nuptial union of man and wife, that was first instituted. Yet we did lift up our hearts and voices to God above, who “showeth His wonders in the deep”; beseeching Him of His mercy, that as in the beginning He discovered the face of the deep, and brought forth dry land, so He would now discover land to us, that we might not perish.
