Abstract: Francis Bacon is known as the ‘father of modern science’ for his writings on the scientific method. Travel and gender tropes are widespread but misunderstood throughout his works. I argue that these tropes reveal Bacon’s epistemology of science—one that is quasi-moral, characterized by discipline, and communicated in relational terms.
