Francis Bacon

The New Atlantis

The New Atlantis essentially is Bacon’s version of Thomas More’s Utopia. In this text, Bacon describes the island of Bensalem, his vision of humanity’s future. He also describes Solomon’s House, a college based on the Baconian method of conducting experimental research (which would later contribute to modern scientific method).
