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’s THE ELEMENTS OF THE COMMON LAWES OF ENGLAND was published in 1630 after his death.  It is regarded as one of the most important legal writings by Bacon. Bacon completed his law degree at Cambridge in 1582 and was named lecturer in legal studies at Gray’s Inn in 1588. Bacon also worked in Parliament as a representative for almost 40 years. In 1593, Bacon’s opposition to a new tax levy resulted in an unfortunate setback to his career expectation as the Attorney General or Solicitor General.  The book is seen as an effort by Bacon who attempted to express his views about the legal systems of England and put his influence on building the systems in a theoretical way.

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 philosophic methodology and laws of England by Francis Bacon, one of the greatest thinkers of modern philosophy and scientists on the planet.
