By Francis Bacon ; Introducción de Alberto Elena ; Traducción y notas de María Luisa Balseiro

El avance del saber, en l. a. medida en que es l. a. quintaesencia del pensamiento baconiano en el período de formación del autor, sintetiza admirablemente las líneas maestras de éste y exhibe ya muchos de los rasgos característicos de su obra de madurez.

El hecho de que ésta quedara inconclusa y de este modo algunos elementos centrales del pensamiento baconiano se vieran privados de un adecuado desarrollo (en specific, sus rules cosmológicas)hacen obligado el estudio de su obra de juventud, vasto iceberg cuya punta no es sino este Avance del saber que ahora ya presentamos por vez primera en lengua castellana.
