|In the 17th century Sir Francis Bacon stood at the very foundation of the scientific revolution and would introduce to it the scientific method that we have amended for our use in modern times. Many of his years were spent as a politician, but this was not to stop him from imposing his genius upon the philosophical and scientific world.
Here in this video we explore his contributions to science and natural philosophy as well as many of his accomplishments achieved throughout his life. I will cover in a basic sense the foundational steps of the scientific method, the four idols, and the legacy he left upon the world of science and philosophy.
