IV. The Baconian Method. But Bacon did not merely point out the promised land and exhort men to discovery; he organized a plan of campaign. There is an opinion to the effect that while Bacon was enlightened in his general ideas, he was benighted in his particular ideas. This opinion is entirely unjust. Bacon does make many of the mistakes current in his time and he deliberately makes Adidas Originals Gazelle Indoor Sneakers Black
at is scarcely intelligible to Buy Adidas Gazelle Trainers day, to assent to theories of nature on grounds of au thority, ecclesiastical or political. Bacon is among the first to formu late the principle of tolerance, according to which there is hope of knowledge, provided only that the mind be free from external constraint. The truth seeking mind can acknowledge no obligations except to evi dence. Fourth, Bacon attacked the tendency, common at the time of the Benaissance, to rely on antiquity. The essentially modern character of Bacon's mind is nowhere more apparent than in his repudiation of the idea that dominated the revival of letters. He detected the dangerous fallacy which had arisen with the new study of the ancient languages and literatures. Historical retrospect inverts the intellectual Adidas Gazelle Shoes Cheap

many loose statements in the hope that they may prove suggestive and stimulating. Furthermore, he necessarily uses terms, such as " form," which, because they were borrowed from Greek and medieval thought, suggest to our minds something pre scientific and obsolete. But this very term, as actually employed by Bacon, is the closest apji>roxmiation in his time to the modern conception of cause, as employed in such sciences as molecular physics and chemistry. Furthermore, and be it said to his great and enduring credit, he was the great systematizer and pop.
The Baconian Survey. As a pioneer in a new intellectual enterprise, it fell to Bacon to draw a rude map of the settled domain and border wilderness of knowledge. It is impossible here to enter into the merits and demerits of his classification of the sciences. Most interesting to us of the present is his explicit provision for what isnow known as " applied science. " But there can be no doubt of the service which Bacon rendered in making such a classification at all. To Bacon modern science is largely indebted for the sense of solidarity that obtains among all special investigators. He was, in a measure at least, responsible for the organization of the Royal Society in London, and of similar societies on the continent. He inspired the collective scientific movement of the Encyclopaedists; and, directly or indirectly, the systematization of science made by Comte, Spencer and others. The present idea, then, that the several sciences are the members of one body, and that those who serve them are serving in one army to achieve the conquest of the unknown, is an idea to which Bacon testi fied clearly and effectually.
the ancients is but the folly of youth Antiquitas sceculi juvenilis mundi. The hope of knowledge lies not in a return to childhood, but in a maturity yet to come. III.
