Francis Bacon was a great English philosopher and one of the founders of the modern system of political philosophy. He is in the row with the greatest thinkers as Isaac Newton, John Locke, Immanuel Kant, Thomas Hobbes, and Jean Rousseau. Their collected thoughts have had strong influence on building the foundation of the United States and its endeavor of open society.

Francis Bacon published The Advancement of Learning   in 1605. His The Advancement of Learning is regarded as the greatest work about the taxonomic structure in English. It also had a strong impact on the highly influential Encyclopédie by Jean le Rond d'Alembert and Denis Diderot. He declared the importance of math in the book as saying: “So that as Tennis is a game of no use in itself, but of great use in respect it maketh a quick eye, and a body ready to put itself in all positions, so, in the Mathematics the use which is collateral, an intervenient, is no less worthy, than that which is principle and intended.”

Bacon is forever remembered as essential enabler, reformer, philosophical advocate, and practitioner of the scientific method during the scientific revolution through his extremely influential works. His works have produced great influence on modern science. His view to the real world became widely recognised as the foremost philosophical and scientific voice. Bacon’s influence has been felt in nearly every field of the humanities and sciences.

This book is one of the most important ones about the thoughts of natural philosophy, learning, and knowledge structure by Francis Bacon, one of the greatest thinkers of modern philosophy and scientists on the planet.
