Portrait of Francis Bacon, published in "Elogii D' Hvomini Letterati Scritti", by Lorenzo Crasso.
Called the father of empiricism, Sir Francis Bacon is credited with establishing and popularizing the “scientific method” of inquiry into natural phenomena.
Throughout his life, Bacon lived mostly on the incline to success but beyond his means. He entered Trinity College at Cambridge at the age of twelve, travelled on the Continent, wrote significant and influential philosophical treatises and essays on reforming learning and reclassifying knowledge, served in Parliament, secured political appointments from Queen Elizabeth and King James I, was knighted in 1603, and became attorney general in 1613 and lord chancellor in 1618.

However, always in debt, Bacon finally lost favour in 1621: he was convicted of corruption, heavily fined, and sentenced to the Tower of London (but was imprisoned only a few days).
Bacon devoted himself more fully to study and writing. Among his later works was a short piece of science fiction, New Atlantis: A Work Unfinished (published in Latin, 1624, posthumously in English, 1627), in which he envisioned a utopian society that embodied his aspirations for mankind. The setting is an island called Bensalem, discovered by a European ship that is lost in the Pacific west of Peru.
