On The Baconian Method

On Bacon's Project:

"... after the brilliant, often witty, and always challenging Bk I, Bk II proves to be a rather pretentious, even half-baked collection of veiled theories, Hermetic innuendos, Scholastic distinctions, and labels. Had only Bk II survived, more than one Ph.D dissertation would have been needed to est precisely what the Baconian method was."
