Review: The Essays

The Essays by Francis Bacon

Awesome book, especially considering when it was written. Bacon apparently was one of the first Europeans to re-introduce the materialism of Epicurus that had been suppressed by organized religious fanatics, aka the Church. Also, Bacon was a lawyer (before writing philosophy), and so that makes him the only lawyer I know of who has made a lasting contribution to the human race.
