...Bacon and Rene Descartes are considered to be two fundamental thinkers, opposite in their approaches to epistemology and the philosophy of science. Bacon’s empirical method is based on perception and experiments, which knowledge is more reliable than the one proposed by Descartes, based on rational deductive reasoning. First of all, these two methods are totally different, because empiricism and rationalism are based on fundamentally different beginnings. Bacon’s Empirical method claims that getting any truthful knowledge is only possible by applying sciences, which acquire information only experimentally. The point is that Bacon considered the reality as perceptional, empirical thing... A – 3 Francis...
