The Advancement of Learning is a book by English philosopher and statesman Francis Bacon, first published in 1605. The full title of the book is Of the Proficience and Advancement of Learning, Divine and Human. Written in the form of a letter to King James, the work is divided into two books. Bacon starts by giving philosophical, civic, and religious arguments for the aim of advancing learning. In the second book, he analyses the state of the sciences of his day, stating what was being done incorrectly, what should be bettered, and in which way should they be advanced.
