The New Organon Or True Directions Concerning The Interpretation of Nature

Francis BACON (1561 - 1626), translated by James SPEDDING (1808 - 1881) and Robert Leslie ELLIS (1817 - 1859) and Douglas Denon HEATH (1811 - 1897)

The Novum Organum is a philosophical work by Francis Bacon published in 1620. 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 . . . This work was critical in the historical development of the scientific method.
