Maggie Eaton Section 311 Extra Credit Project The Baconian project was Francis Bacon’s search for experimental and natural history. His goal was to discover these histories and publish them in hopes that the discussion of the topics in this publication would lead to a better understanding of philosophy. Among the things he wanted to know the history of were comets, snow, and magnets, but also life and death, the generation of man, and the affections. In 1645 Bacon founded the Philosophical Society to study these subjects with his peers. This organization later turned into the Royal Society which was the same group that later published the Philosophical Transactions .
