Englishman Sir Francis Bacon was a philosopher, statesman and author. Bacon, one of the founders of scientific inquiry, demonstrates his bias toward inductive methodology for scientific inquiry -- known as the Baconian method -- in this essay. He uses a Greek myth about how a Sphinx ambushes travelers with riddles and suggests that the fable was "invented apparently in allusion to Science; especially in its application to practical life."
