Abstract

In this paper I attempt to show that Bacon’s interpretation of the scriptural stories of the Creation and Fall of man provides the conditions of possibility for the knowledge of nature. I will show that Bacon’s references to these Biblical narratives unveil important philosophical assumptions related to what kind of universe is out there and what type of knowledge of the world the human agent can experience.

 

Key-words: Francis Bacon, theological foundations, epistemology, Valerius Terminus.

Cuvinte cheie: Francis Bacon, fundamente teologice, epistemologie, Valerius Terminus.
