Francis Bacon: New ways to think about the contents of experience

Bacon taught humanity to focus it’s attention to the  physical objects which are the “contents of experience”- and to the otherside the patterns to which they obey. He formulated new ways of thinking about the contents of experience. He gave us the advice to get rid of most preconceived beliefs and ideras – and in place thereoff gather as much as possible facts.

We must not try to put patterns on these parts of information – but patiently wait until there come richer patterns with more depth come to the surface. This is why he gets called the “father of induction”

In short: Bacon realised that – If you observe objects as objectively as possible – entirely different patterns will start to announce then the patterns that give structure to the subjective experience.
