Bacon was born in London on January 22 1561. He was a philosopher of the industrial age, as expressed effectively the influence of scientific discoveries on setting the man's life. His father, Sir Nicholas Bacon, Lord Keeper was one of Queen Elizabeth. Bacon had entered the University of Cambridge in twelve and remained at Trinity College until 1575.
He led a brilliant political career, but despite the work did not forget the intellectual commitment so much that in 1620 he published the Novum Organum that would replace the Aristotelian Organon and is the second part of an encyclopedic project of instauratio Magna. Bacon's career was cut short in 1621 because he was accused of corruption before the House of Lords. Bacon, in fact, had accepted the gifts before issuing judgments, being a judge. He was imprisoned for a few days and died in 1626.
Bacon defends the advanced technology as seen in the technology a way to improve their quality of life. To understand technology tools. Galilei had already subverted the laws Aristotelian studying through the telescope so even Bacon, having lived in the same period of Galileo had realized the importance of technology for scientific knowledge. While before the scientific revolution tools were seen as a support to science, now they are on the same floor. Science uses the technology to improve or vice versa. So the scientific revolution in the technology then acquires great importance, whereas before the scientist was primarily a scholar who devoted himself with Aristotelian studying the books already obsolete.
He is a perfect method for the scientist. While the Galilean method is more practical than theoretical, that of Bacon is more systematic and therefore more theoretical.
