Under the broad theme of utopia, the special issue of Studii de Stiinta si Cultura consists of a series of research papers dedicated to the field of early modern philosophy, history, religion or science. They all focus on the important questions raised by Francis Bacon’s New Atlantis. Structured on three parts, the volume covers some aspects of the research performed in the past ten years in the area of early modern studies. Some papers highlight Bacon’s theological foundations of natural philosophy or emphasize the problem of esotericism in his science, while others set forth the Iberian background of the author’s project.
