Francis Bacon was one of England's most famous figures and is referred to as the father of the scientific method. Despite Bacon's stalwart approach to empirical science, however, his work is surrounded by other elements -rumors of connections to the Rosicrucians, the hidden world of the occult, and other conspiracies. Was Francis Bacon influenced by mystical and spiritual elements as well as emerging scientific ideas? Author Daniel Branco offers a compelling hypothesis that provides detailed explanations of Bacon's inspiration from esoteric, religious, philosophical, and spiritual sources, framing them within the narrative of Bacon's view of science and social issues of his era. Branco provides a perfectly balanced explanation of Francis Bacon's thoughts, encapsulating his entire works and world-view in a succinct and deeply profound manner, which explains Bacon's contribution to the world of science. The book also examines his spiritual life and how Bacon integrated it with the esotericism of the Renaissance and the Christian society of his time. Branco examines not only Bacon's connections to the Rosicrucians, but also those of Hermeticism, Neo-Platonism, Hebrew texts, and the many different fractions of Christianity which were contemporaneous with Bacon. Branco presents an image of Francis Bacon, which reveals not only a scientific and philosophical genius but also a spiritual man who sought to reconcile scientific advancement with spiritual growth, identity, and tradition. The Mystical Foundations of Francis Bacon's Science is not only of value to those interested in the history of Francis Bacon, science, philosophy, or the occult. It is also important to the modern world, in which people often struggle to reconcile the empirical methodology of science with the intangible nature of the spiritual. As such, Bacon is a figure who can help the reader bridge the great schism of our times, where science and religion are portrayed as incompatible word-views. The Mystical Foundations of Francis Bacon's Science is a book for those interested in the past and intrigued by the future.

This study re-evaluates the religious beliefs of Francis Bacon and the role which his theology played in the development of his program for the reform of learning and the natural sciences, the Great Instauration. Bacon's Instauration writings are saturated with theological statements and Biblical references which inform and explain his program, yet this aspect of his writings has received little attention. Previous considerations of Bacon's religion have been drawn from a fairly short list of his published writings. Consequently, Bacon has been portrayed as everything from an atheist to a Puritan; scholarly consensus is lacking. This book argues that by considering the historical context of Bacon's society, and his conversion from Puritanism to anti-Calvinism as a young man, his own theology can be brought into clearer focus, and his philosophy more properly understood. After leaving his mother's household, Bacon underwent a transformation of belief which led him away from his mother's Calvinism and toward the writings of the ancient Church Fathers, particularly Irenaeus of Lyon. Bacon's theology increasingly came to reflect the theological interests of his friend and editor Lancelot Andrewes. The patristic turn of Bacon's belief in the last two decades of the reign of Elizabeth significantly affected the development of his philosophical program which was produced in the first two decades of the Stuart era. This study then examines the theology present in the Instauration writings themselves and concludes with a consideration of the effect which Bacon's theology had on the subsequent direction of empirical science and natural theology in the English context. In so doing it not only offers a new perspective on Bacon, but will serve as a contribution toward a better understanding of the religious context of, and motivations behind, empirical science in early modern England.

This book sets the foundations of Newton's alchemy in their historical context in Restoration England. It is shown that alchemical modes of thought were quite strong in many of those who provided the dynamism for the scientific revolution of the seventeenth century and that these modes of thought had important relationships with general movements for reform in the same period.

Kelsenian Legal Science And The Nature Of Law

This book critically examines the conception of legal science and the nature of law developed by Hans Kelsen. It provides a single, dedicated space for a range of established European scholars to engage with the influential work of this Austrian jurist, legal philosopher, and political philosopher. The introduction provides a thematization of the Kelsenian notion of law as a legal science. Divided into six parts, the chapter contributions feature distinct levels of analysis. Overall, the structure of the book provides a sustained reflection upon central aspects of Kelsenian legal science and the nature of law. Parts one and two examine the validity of the project of Kelsenian legal science with particular reference to the social fact thesis, the notion of a science of positive law and the specifically Kelsenian concept of the basic norm (Grundnorm). The next three parts engage in a critical analysis of the relationship of Kelsenian legal science to constitutionalism, practical reason, and human rights. The last part involves an examination of the continued pertinence of Kelsenian legal science as a theory of the nature of law with a particular focus upon contemporary non-positivist theories of law. The conclusion discusses the increasing distance of contemporary theories of legal positivism from a Kelsenian notion of legal science in its consideration of the nature of law.

This is the second volume of Proceedings of the Israel Colloquium for the History, Philosophy and Sociology of Science. At the time that this preface is being written, the fourth annual series of lectures within the framework of the Israel Colloquium is already behind us and the fifth is underway. The Israel Colloquium thus has now not only a future to look forward to but also a past which is a source ,of pride and pleasure for those who take part in this venture. The Israel Colloquium has, I believe, struck roots in the Israeli scientific and intellectual life, while drawing on the ever-increasing readiness of the international scientific and intellectual community for continuous support. As in the first volume, here too the papers presented, taken together, attempt a threefold representation of science and of the scientific activity: the historical, the social, and the systematic. A novel focal point in this volume is the treatment of some case studies illuminating historical, social, and philosophical aspects of medicine. Another center of gravity here is the Eddington Centennial Symposium which was a main event in the Collo quium activity of the 1982-83 series. This is a fitting place for me to report with sorrow the untimely death in the summer of 1984 of Solly G. Cohen, one of Israel's leading scientists, who is among the contributors to this volume.

Dedicated to Pope John Paul II and his recent essay "Fides et Ratio", this book looks at Y2K from the standpoint of Catholic theology. Attempting to cut through the more vapid and hysterical manifestations of millenarianism, Walsh (a scholar whose affiliations are not noted) insists on Christianity as the basis of Western civilization, especially its science and its concept of human rights.
