ABSTRACT
Francis Bacon virtually limits liberty to scientific activity, to the right to choose from the largest possible number of alternatives. This makes science more creative. Bacon suggests that going beyond the limits of liberty may expose us to danger from the world of politics. This is why Bacon recommends conformism in social life despite the revolutionary nature of his discoveries.
