The Enlightenment: Sir Francis Bacon
Rate This Website
Sir Francis Bacon was one of the most major contributors to the modern
scientific world. Based on his methods, reasoning, and philosophies, every
person who seeks the truth or knowledge can learn how to obtain these things.
But more importantly, he is a person whose mistakes we can all learn from. As
mentioned in the "Failures" page of this website, he was fined, imprisoned, and
banished from public office and Parliament for accepting bribes and for
committing 23 accounts of corruption. As a great political power at the height of
his political career, Bacon had let the power go to his head and had thought that
he could avoid all of the rules because he thought he could get away with it.
Based on his mistakes, we can learn how to not let what happened to him
happen to us.
Overall, Sir Francis Bacon is an important person to learn about
because his contributions to the modern scientific world can help us learn how to
discover the truth or make a ground-breaking discovery. This discovery can
change the world and can get our names in the history books for our discovery
and not because of a political scandal.
