Dr Jardine finds a unifying principle in Bacons preoccupation with method, the evaluation and organisation of information as a procedure of investigation or of presentation.

She shows how such an interpretation makes consistent (and often surprising) sense of the whole corpus of Bacons writings: how the familiar but misunderstood inductive method for natural science relations to the more information strategies of argument in his historical, ethical, political and literary work.

There is a substantial and valuable study of the intellectual Renaissance background from which Bacon emerged and against which he reacted. Through a series of details comparisons and contrasts we are led to appreciate the true originality and ingenuity of Bacons own views and also to discount the more superficial resemblances between them and later developments in the philosophy of science.
