Synopsis

"The New Organon " (defined as the New Tool ) aims to offer a new method of investigating nature, called the Interpretation of Nature . A better use of the mind and the understanding is needed to investigate nature. Bacon suggests an entirely new system of logic, which is based on induction rather than on the syllogism. Induction begins with the facts of nature and works slowly towards general axioms or propositions, by building up tables of comparison. Experiments are to be used to assist the senses in this process.
