In 1971 he wrote a doctoral dissertation for the University of Birmingham on Francis Bacon’s Natural Philosophy . In 1975 he published the first of a series of articles outlining what he calls Bacon’s “speculative philosophy,” an element in Bacon’s work which, he claims, has been insufficiently recognized by historians of science. 1 In 1982, according to his own account, he formed the idea for a new edition of Bacon’s writings, and with the help of Lisa Jardine submitted a publishing proposal which Cambridge University Press accepted in March 1986.
