The Essays of Francis Bacon is considered by many to be the best manual for living in short form that has ever been written. Published between 1597 and 1625, they were Bacon’s chief contribution to literature, and one which subjected all forms of knowledge to his views of life. This collection contains fifty-eight essays, masterfully written with a spirit of superior confidence. Compiled from his other works, the essays were intended only as private notes for the perusal of a few friends.

Francis Bacon (1561 –1626) was an English philosopher, statesman, scientist, lawyer, jurist and author. He famously died of pneumonia contracted while studying the effects of freezing on the preservation of meat. He served both as Attorney General and Lord Chancellor of England. Although his political career ended in disgrace, he remained extremely influential through his works, especially as philosophical advocate and practitioner of the scientific method and pioneer in the scientific revolution. Bacon has been called the father of empiricism. His works established and popularized inductive methodologies for scientific inquiry, often called the Baconian method or simply, the scientific method. His demand for a planned procedure of investigating all things natural marked a new turn in the rhetorical and theoretical framework for science, much of which still surrounds conceptions of proper methodology today. His dedication probably led to his death, bringing him into a rare historical group of scientists who were killed by their own experiments. Bacon was knighted in 1603, created Baron Verulam in 1618, and Viscount St Alban in 1621; as he died without heirs both peerages became extinct upon his death.
