The famous collection of Francis Bacon’s essays. A beautiful example of the English language. He covers many topics ranging from gardening to religion and politics. The essays are full of great observations that are still relevant today.
The Novum Organum is titled in reference to Aristotle’s Organon. This work is credited with being the beginning of the current conception of the scientific method. Unlike The Essays, you will get more argumentation from Bacon in this work. Hear arguments that you can see in current science speak.
