Francis Bacon, 1st Baron of Verulamium, 1st Viscount of Saint Albans and Chancellor of England (Strand, London, January 22, 1561-Highgate, Middlesex, April 9, 1626) was a celebrated English philosopher, politician, lawyer and writer, father of philosophical and scientific empiricism.

In his Novum organum (1620) he specified the rules of the experimental scientific method, and developed in his De dignitate et augmentis scientiarum (On the dignity and progress of the sciences) (1620) an empirical theory of knowledge, which made him one of the the pioneers of modern scientific thought.1 2 He also introduced the essay genre in England.
