Francis Bacon The Novum Organum is a philosophical work by Francis Bacon
published in 1620. The title translates as "new instrument". This is a reference
to Aristotle's work Organon, which was his treatise on logic and
syllogism. In Novum Organum, Bacon details a new system of logic he
believes to be superior to the old ways of syllogism. For Bacon, finding the
essence of a thing was a simple process of reduction, and the use of inductive
reasoning. In finding the cause of a phenomenal nature such as heat, one
must list all of the situations where heat is found. Then another list should be
drawn up, listing situations that are similar to those of the first list except
for the lack of heat. A third table lists situations where heat can vary. The
form nature, or cause, of heat must be that which is common to all
instances in the first table, is lacking from all instances of the second table
and varies by degree in instances of the third table.

Francis Bacon La nueva Atlántida pertenece a las grandes utopías clásicas de la historia del pensamiento. La obra de Bacon posee un gran interés dentro del género, debido a que, además de sus valores intrínsecos, su autor es un filósofo eminente y un clásico literario de la lengua inglesa. A diferencia de Tomás Moro, cuya fama radica precisamente en su Utopía, Bacon escribió La nueva Atlántida como por añadidura de su profunda obra filosófica. Todo el Pensamiento de Moro se halla en su Utopía; parte del pensamiento de Bacon se encuentra en su libro La nueva Atlántida. Esto no desmerece, naturalmente, la valía de la obra que va a conocer el lector. Al contrario, para quien se halle familiarizado con las doctrinas de Bacon ofrece redoblado interés saber qué pensaba el gran empirista inglés sobre la organización social y el porvenir de la ciencia y de la técnica.

The Story of Atlantis (William Scott-Elliot)
Atlantis ("island of Atlas") is a mystical island mentioned within an allegory on the hubris of nations in Plato's works Timaeus and Critias, where it represents the antagonist naval power that besieges "Ancient Athens". Plato's indications of the time of the events—more than 9,000 years before his day, and the alleged location of Atlantis—"beyond the Pillars of Hercules", has led to much scientific speculation. As a consequence, Atlantis has become a byword for any and all supposed advanced prehistoric lost civilizations. At the end of the story, Atlantis eventually falls out of favor with the gods and famously submerges into the Atlantic Ocean. Despite its secondary importance in Plato's work, the Atlantis story has had a considerable impact on literature. The allegorical aspect of Atlantis was taken up in utopian works of several Renaissance writers, such as Francis Bacon's New Atlantis. On the other hand, 19th-century scholars interpreted Plato's account as historical tradition, most notably in Ignatius L. Donnelly's Atlantis: The Antediluvian World. Many of his theories are the source of many modern-day concepts about Atlantis, including these: the civilization and technology beyond its time, the origins of all present races and civilizations, and a civil war between good and evil. Much of Donnelly's scholarship, especially with regard to Atlantis as an explanation for similarities between ancient civilizations of the Old and New Worlds.
Francis Bacon In 1623 Sir Francis Bacon expressed his aspirations and ideals in The
New Atlantis. Released in 1627, this utopian novel was his creation of
an ideal land where "generosity and enlightenment, dignity and splendor, piety
and public spirit" were the commonly held qualities of the inhabitants of
Bensalem. In this work, he portrayed a vision of the future of human discovery
and knowledge. The plan and organization of his ideal college, "Solomon's
House", envisioned the modern research university in both applied and pure
