It can't be, because the notion of book is wider than the notion of science... Thank God.

Francis Bacon and Empiricism

Empiricism is science that is "provable or verifiable by experience or experiment"

Bacon criticized the current scholastic thinkers for studying too much of the past, and not searching for new discoveries

He thought of himself as the next Columbus, blazing a new path to intellectual discovery

While known as the "father of empiricism", Bacon was not himself an avid experimenter, and spent much of his time and skills as a writer He was successful in creating an atmosphere and attitude conducive for empirical experimentation and scientific work Science that needs to be seen to be believed Bacon encouraged his contemporaries to make new discoveries He wanted his fellow scientists to have confidence in themselves and their abilities, rather than relying on the work of past people "Books must follow sciences, and not sciences books." He believed that "science had a practical purpose and its goal was human improvement" He also advised politicians to pay attention to scientific discovery, which could increase the power of governments Bacon's works: The Advancement of Learning (1605) Novum Organum (1620) New Atlantis (1627) Encouraged scientists to ask new questions about the world around them "New Method" increased knowledge of nature would lead to a better human existence Speculation should be supported by tangible evidence, such as empirical data

Sciences and books alike must find inspiration from life, the surrounding reality, and in turn must be confirmed
in life.
