The title translates as "new instrument". This is a reference to Aristotle's work Organon, which was his treatise on logic and syllogism. In Novum Organum, Bacon details a new system of logic he believes to be superior to the old ways of syllogism. For Bacon, finding the essence of a thing was a simple process of reduction, and the use of inductive reasoning. In finding the cause of a phenomenal nature such as heat, one must list all of the situations where heat is found. Then another list should be drawn up, listing situations that are similar to those of the first list except for the lack of heat. A third table lists situations where heat can vary. The form nature, or cause, of heat must be that which is common to all instances in the first table, is lacking from all instances of the second table and varies by degree in instances of the third table. — Excerpted from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Format:Kindle Edition
Francis Bacon (1561-1626), was an English philosopher, statesman, scientist, jurist, orator, essayist, and author. He also wrote Essays: Or Councils, Civil and Moral.

"Organon" was the name given by Aristotle's followers to his works on logic. By proposing a "New" Organon, Bacon was suggesting a new method for finding out truth, that was completely different from the classical Greek and Medieval Christian deductive models. Bacon asserts, "Aristotle... corrupted natural philosophy by his logic: fashioning the world out of categories,; assigning to the human soul... a genus from words of the second intention; doing the business of density and rarity... by the frigid distinction of act and power; asserting the single bodies have each a single and proper motion, and that if they participate in any other, then this results from an external cause; and imposing countless other arbitrary restrictions on the nature of things; being always more solicitous to provide an answer to the question and affirm something positive in words, than about the inner truth of things..." (LXIII, pg. 60)

He states in The Great Instauration [i.e., restoration], "I therefore reject the syllogism, and that not only as regards principles... but also as regards middle propositions... therefore, I leave to the syllogism and these famous and boasted modes of demonstration their jurisdiction over popular arts and such as are matter of opinion... yet in dealing with the nature of things I will use induction throughout, and that in the minor propositions as well as the major.

5.0 out of 5 stars brings home the Bacon March 23, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Francis is the bad boy of science - the guy who started it all. The scientific method. 1620
Hey, its great for killing people (Newton's cannon balls), and good for medical malfeasance (Pasteur and Koch)
but not so good for curing cancer.

See Karl Popper.
