Ellis’ Major Difficulty

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The difficulty that Ellis had is one that all of his commentators should share. All the defects that Bacon exhibited contribute to the riddle: why did generations of serious thinkers of all sorts praise him so liberally? Ellis was convinced that there must be some just reason to this praise. He could not find it.
