THE PERFECT LANGUAGE, THE PERFECT STATE. Edition No. 1
VDM Publishing House, December 2010, Pages: 164
This book aims at evaluating Francis Bacon's role in the seventeenth-century universal language movement in England in the framework of the interdisciplinary analysis including such fields as linguistics, history, politics and philosophy. Many a time the role of Francis Bacon has been presented one-sidedly - he has been presented either as a reformer of science or the Lord Chancellor and the mediator between James I and the House of Commons at the Jacobean court. The author of this books appeals for an interdisciplinary analysis of the philosopher, bearing in mind the complexity of his convictions and beliefs and his important role in shaping the history of England. Hopefully, this book will enhance a better understanding of the seventeenth-century England together with the prevailing desires and aspirations during the beginning of its transition from the Renaissance period to the times of new science.
