Francis Bacon on Interpretation - Dictionary of Arguments

Gadamer I 354
Interpretation/Bacon/Gadamer: Through methodically organized experiments, it should allow the gradual ascent to the true, durable generalities, the simple forms of nature. This true method is characterized by the fact that the mind is not left to itself there(1); it must not fly as it wishes. Rather, the requirement is to ascend gradatim (step by step) from the particular to the general in order to acquire an orderly experience that avoids all haste.(2) >Induction/Bacon, >Francis Bacon/Gadamer.


2. F. Bacon, Nov. Org.. 1, 20f; 104.
3. A.a.O. l, 19ff.

Feyerabend I 97
Natural interpretation/Bacon/Feyerabend: Bacon wanted to remove natural interpretations (which were prejudices for him) like the shells of an onion. He thought the interpretations were simply added to the perception.
I 98
Natural interpretation/observation language/FeyerabendVsBacon: without them we would be completely disorientated. We also cannot separate their netting.
