Editorial Reviews

Review

'This is an excellent piece of work - subtle, original, highly innovatory, and distinctly readable. Its main theses are really facinating and very well maintained, and it seems to me that this book will signal a new start for early modern science and philosophy.' G. R. Elton

Book Description

Why was it that Francis Bacon, trained for high political office, devoted himself to proposing a celebrated and sweeping reform of the natural sciences? Julian Martin's investigative study looks at Bacon's family context, his employment in Queen Elizabeth's security service and his radical critique of the relationship between the Common Law and the monarchy, to find the key to this important question.
