Abstract

Is language - well beyond formulas and equations - important to science? This book dwells on the role played by Francis Bacon's rich, original imagery in the early formulation of the new idea of science that would mature and flourish across the XVII century. A selection of Bacon's key images, metaphors and analogies are analysed with an eye both to the XVI and early XVII century intellectual milieu that inspired them, and to Bacon's own philosophical vision that creatively transformed them and firmly held them together.
