  • Texto en inglés. Tapa blanda de editorial ilustrada. Buen estado de conservación. Although he had a distinguished career as a lawyer and statesman, Francis Bacon´s lifelong goal was to improve and extend human knowledge. In The Advancement of Learning (1605) he made a brilliant critique of the deficiencies of previous systems of thought and proposed improvements to knowledge in every area of human life. He conceived the Essays (1597, much enlarged in 1625) as a study of the formative influences on human behaviour, psychological and social. In The New Atlantis (1626) he outlined his plan for a scientific research institute in the form of a Utopian fable. In addition to these major English works this edition includes ´Of Tribute´, an important early work here printed complete for the first time, and a revealing selection of his legal and political writings, together with his poetry. This authoritative edition brings together an extensive collection of Bacon's writing--the major prose in full, together with sixteen other pieces not otherwise available--that reveals the essence of his work and thinking.
