Bacon's literary executor, Dr. Rowley, published “The New Atlantis” in 1627, the year after the author's death. It seems to have been written about 1623, during that period of literary activity which followed Bacon's political fall. None of Bacon's writings gives in short apace so vivid a picture of his tastes and aspirations as this fragment of the plan of an ideal commonwealth. The generosity and enlightenment, the dignity and splendor, the piety and public spirit, of the inhabitants of Bensalem represent the ideal qualities which Bacon the statesman desired rather than hoped to see characteristic of his own country; and in Solomon's House we have Bacon the scientist indulging without restriction his prophetic vision of the future of human knowledge. No reader acquainted in any degree with the processes and results of modern scientific inquiry can fail to be struck by the numerous approximations made by Bacon's imagination to the actual achievements of modern times. The plan . . .

Francis Bacon, lawyer, statesman, and philosopher, remains one of the most effectual thinkers in European intellectual history. We can trace his influence from Kant in the 1700s to Darwin a century later., first published in 1605, contains an unprecedented and thorough systematization of the whole range of human knowledge. Bacon’s argument that the sciences should move away from divine philosophy and embrace empirical observation would forever change the way philosophers and natural scientists interpret their world.

Francis Bacon is considered the father of modern science. He proposed, at his time, a great reformation of all process of knowledge for the advancement of learning divine and human. He called it Instauratio Magna (The Great Instauration). Bacon planned his Great Instauration in imitation of the Divine Work-- the Work of the Six Days of Creation, as defined in the Bible, leading to the Seventh Day of Rest or Sabbath in which Adam's dominion over creation would be restored, thus dividing the great reformation in six parts: 1. Partitions of the Sciences 2. New Method 3. Natural History 4. Ladder of the Intellect 5. Anticipations of the 2nd Philosophy 6. The Second Philosophy or Active Science.

Das Novum organum scientiarum (dt. "Neues Werkzeug der Kenntnisse"), genauer De verulamio novum organum scientiarum in deutscher Übersetzung Neues Organon, ist das wissenschaftstheoretische philosophische Hauptwerk von Francis Bacon, das in Latein verfasst und 1620 in England veröffentlicht wurde. Es gilt als Wendepunkt in der Kulturgeschichte zwischen mittelalterlichem Denken und neuzeitlicher methodischer Forschung, die auf Fortschritt und damit Gemeinwohl ausgerichtet ist.
Als Idolenlehre wird das in diesem Werk von Francis Bacon 1620 entwickelte erkenntniskritische Konzept des Empirismus bezeichnet. Mit diesem Vorgehen sollen Trugschlüsse und naive Naturverständnisse vermieden werden. Im wissenschaftlichen Sinne sollen die Ereignisse kognitiv geordnet werden mit dem Ziel die Welt zu verstehen und Regeln zu entwickeln.
Das Werk ist im Wesentlichen durch nummerierte Aphorismen bestimmt, welche die Notwendigkeit eines unvoreingenommenen wissenschaftlichen Forschens betonen. . . .
