Francis Bacon was an English philosopher, statesman, scientist, lawyer, jurist, author, and father of the scientific method. He was born in London on 22 January 1561, into a wealthy and influential aristocratic family. He studied at both Cambridge and Oxford Universities and was admitted to the bar in 1582. Bacon was an exceptionally versatile and influential thinker, writing on a wide range of topics including science, religion, justice, and politics.

Bacon is considered the father of empiricism, and his works established and popularised inductive methodologies for scientific inquiry. His works established and popularised inductive methodologies for scientific inquiry, and he argued for the possibility of scientific knowledge based only upon inductive reasoning and careful observation of events in nature. He advanced the scientific method, and his works greatly influenced the development of science.

Bacon was also a politician and served both as Attorney General and Lord Chancellor of England. As a patron of the arts and sciences, he played a vital role in the establishment of the Royal Society, an academic organisation dedicated to the improvement of natural knowledge. He was knighted in 1603.

Bacon's writings had a profound impact on the development of science. His works Novum Organum, The Advancement of Learning, and The New Atlantis were seminal works in the development of scientific thought. He is credited with developing the scientific method, which is still used today in research and study. Bacon's ideas were also influential in the development of the Enlightenment, which emphasised the importance of empirical evidence and scientific inquiry.

Bacon's influence can also be seen in the field of philosophy, particularly in the fields of epistemology, ethics, and political philosophy.

He is also credited with introducing the concept of utilitarianism, which argues that one should act in such a way as to bring about the greatest happiness for the greatest number of people.

Francis Bacon died on 9 April 1626 in Highgate, London, and was buried in St. Michael's Church, St. Albans.
