What happened to the bacon? Sir Francis Bacon is generally considered the father of inductive reasoning as used by modern science. See also this brief essay on the development of empiricism.

Whether that applies to "this Science" is another question. Perhaps, we ought to add David Chalmers? (uses "philosophical zombies" in discussions of mind and identity) or George A. Romero (Night of the Living Dead)?

Best, beth
