In this episode we continue our series on Francis Bacon. Here, we will further explore some of the ideas and concepts concerning the philosophy of science, which we originally introduced and overviewed in the previous episode during our analysis of Bacon's "Art of Discovery".
This episode/article (see my Substack for the written version) begins with a discussion of seven key themes in the philosophical approach to science that Bacon advocated. Then, we move on to discuss seven key laws of nature, as outlined by Manly P. Hall in his 1942 article titled "The Seven Great Laws that Rule the World". These represent Hall's framework for seven Summary Laws, which are the "well-proven axioms" that constitute Step Six of Bacon's six-stepped method.
After this episode, two more await in this ongoing series on Francis Bacon. These last two articles are really one article split in two. It's called "the Four Masks of Francis Bacon" and delves into Bacon's role in the Shakespeare mystery, among other topics. Stay tuned.
