Part I
Section 1: Why is Francis Bacon be weary of Anticipations of Nature? Why does Bacon
prefer interpretations of Nature? Give an example from a real life experience to flesh out
your insight
Bacon ventures to explore in a critical way the induction and on the way to it he attacks Aristotle
for the reasoning where he only anticipates nature with general questions. On the other hand, life
as such is. It exists indistinctly from our past and defines itself. This is the relentless pursuit of
truth that does not want to be subject to standard and immaterial assumptions. It is like when
Aristotle following the steps of Plato explores the world of ideas and reaches conclusions where
the representation of objects is closer to the truth. Although the purpose itself is right and its
reality is constituted by the properties of the object. Then Bacon has this disagreement with the
anticipation of what is known because he understands that it is only recognizable as it exists and
not precisely that it is seen.
It's like saying that a car is an object that exists through the representation that is created in my
mind and represents it, that that object only exists as long as I imagine it and that my relationship
with it is conditioned by the vision I have. And so we could apply it to an infinity of things that
could be materially knowable for our senses but starting from this principle we could say that
whatever we see could only be an image that is perceptible through our thoughts and built by
them. Then this car that we touch and even smell the paint adhered to the metal that is part of all
the materials that make up the car would only be an object that appeared to the extent that our
conscience was elaborating the vehicle in detail. Although we know that all material resources
are what constitute objects and these exist from these properties that come from nature.
Therefore the car is an object that exists indistinctly of my perception of it and will continue to
live whether observable or not.
In aphorism 10 gives us an image on this subject and exemplifies it: "Nature is much subtler than
are our senses and intellect; So that...
