Francis Bacon was an English philosopher, statesman, scientist, jurist and author. After his death, he remained extremely influential through his works, especially as philosophical advocate and practitioner of the scientific method during the scientific revolution. The historian William Dixon wrote “Bacon's influence in modern world is so great that every man who rides in a train, sends a telegram, follows a steam plough, sits in an easy chair, crosses the channel or the Atlantic, eats a good dinner, enjoys a beautiful garden, or undergoes a painless surgical operation, owes him something.”
In the book “Valerius Terminus: Of the Interpretation of Nature” Bacon considers the moral, religious and philosophical implications and requirements of the advancement of learning and the development of science. In fact, it is a first of his scientific writings. In this book he outlines what he believed to be the limits and true ends of pursuing knowledge through sciences. It is a valuable source for anyone who is trying to penetrate into the secrets of the science and especially for those who has to write a substantial research paper.
