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 New Atlantis was published in 1627 after his death. In this work, Bacon was to explain and interpret a vision of the future of human discovery and knowledge. It is seen as expressing Bacon’s aspirations and ideals for humankind by tracing them to the creation of a utopian land where "generosity and enlightenment, dignity and splendour, piety and public spirit" are the commonly followed standards of the inhabitants of the mythical Bensalem. This book by Bacon is also one of the first modern classics of the plan and organization of his ideal college, Salomon's House that is the foundation of the modern research university in both applied and pure sciences. Although written some hundred years ago, Francis Bacon's analysis of his envisioned ideal life is powerful, penetrating and insightful. Although Bacon examined many important elements to create not only an ideal world, but provided a key document in the development of his political thought. The book is often regarded as one of the most important utopian writings and is seen as an effort by Bacon who attempted to provide a framework of a modern society.

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 the essential reading of anyone who is interested in philosophy, politics, legal systems, and literature by Francis Bacon, one of the greatest thinkers of modern philosophy and scientists on the planet.
