Bessel's assumption that certyain changes in the proper motions of the starts Sirius and Procyon are based on the presence of invisible companion stars had opened a new field in celestial mechanics.

'... his place in the history of science rests chiefly upon his natural philosophy, his philosophy of scientific method, his projects for the practical organization of science, and the infleunce of all of these upon the science of the later 17th century. ... his principal publications in these areas were The Advancement of Learning [1605], expaned an latinized as De augmentis scientiarum [1623]; De sapientia veterum [1609]; Novum Organum [1620; and Sylva sylvarum and New Atlantis [1627]. ... Although Bacon was a contemporary of William Gilbert, Galileo, Johannes Kepler, and William Harvey, he was curiously isolated from the scientific developments with which they were associated. His knowledge of and contribution to the natural sciences were almost entirely literary; ... most of Bacon's comments on both his scientific contemporaries and his philosophical predecessors are critical... Bacon's closest associations with contemporary science were with atomism and with the Renaissance tradition of natural magic.': 'Novum Organum' is in fact Bacon's second part of his projected 'Great Instauration', a description of his ideas and method behind his natural philosophy, foreshadowed in his 1603 'Valerius terminus'.
