Volume II is the first printing. Nice pair of this important, once quite influential book. "The outlook for western civilization, to Spengler, is gloomy. The end is at hand. Democracy, the typical product of western civilization, will be wiped out by caesaren autocracy. The temendous success of the book among the semi-literate, especially in Germany and America, during the period after the First World War, is a politico-sociological phenomenon that has nothing to do with the instrinsic merits or demerits of this 'new outlook on history and the philosophy of destiny', as the author himself described the aim of his book...it was the major prophet, Toynbee, who took up the mantle that fell from the minor prophet, Spengler". - PRINTING AND THE MIND OF MAN #410.

    Edition: First printing

"Francis Bacon and the Rhetoric of Nature offers a synthesis of Bacons views about language and nature.

He examines traditional views of nature and persuasion that were influential in the intellectual and practical life of early-seventeenth-century England, and shows how Bacon replaces the old nature with is gradual unfolding of organic potential with a new nature of violence, secrecy, and instantaneous revelation rewarding the self-abnegating, assiduous sons of science.

John Briggs clarifies the close relation between Bacons famous reform of scientific method and his less well-known conceptions of rhetoric, nature, and religion. He examines traditional views of nature and persuasion that were influential in the intellectual and practical life of early-seventeenth-century England, and shows how Bacon replaces the old nature with is gradual unfolding of organic potential with a new nature of violence, secrecy, and instantaneous revelation rewarding the self-abnegating, assiduous sons of science. Briggs explores Bacons paradoxes and puzzles in the context of the older Aristotelian and cosmological perspective, paying particular attention to the views of persuasion. He points out a remarkable and complex consistency in Bacons use of Solomon, Moses, Paul, and the Greeks, and reveals the depth of Bacons conviction that nature is Gods code, which scientists decipher and exploit. He uncovers, throughout in Bacons work, a darker, more Machiavellian and ingenious Bacon than the twentieth-century admirers of his rationalist facade have identified." - jacket.
