This post is not about philosophy but instead about a philosopher. Do you think of Francis Bacon as a genius?

Within the context of his time, he did see what no one else saw. His method of inductive and 4 idols of the mind heavily influence us today. His 4 Idols of the mind commonly spring up in philosophical conversations and debates against religious people. We use them commonly without realizing it when we are thinking critically.

I think he is not credited enough for his realizations. Specifically one of my textbooks directly suggests that he is not critically important. The author refers to him as a "cheerleader" motiving the method of induction.

Are you joking? Francis Bacon was one of the most brilliant minds EVER. Pure wisdom. They don't make men like that anymore.
