Shelfari edited the description of "The Essays" of Francis Bacon Tuesday, June 8, 2010.
It was Sir Francis Bacon that first coined the term "knowledge is power". During his life time Sir Francis was considered to be one of the most intelligent men alive. This is one of the reason why he is often credited with writing the Shakespeare plays, as it was believed by many scholars that `only Francis Bacon could have been so cleaver.? Bacon's ideas about the improvement of the human condition are still very influential among people interested in motivation and self-improvement today.
