Contemporary environmental crisis is the product of many factors: intellectual, cultural, political and economic. Not only is the role philosophical perspectives have had in generating this crisis is significant, but also philosophical ideas are among the most fundamental causes of this crisis. Undoubtedly, one of the most influential ideas and philosophical foundations in the generation of the environmental crises are Francis Bacon's theories. The way he has explained the universe, and almost most elements of his philosophical perspectives, i.e. anthropology, nature and logic, have influenced man’s welfare and triggered environmental degradation. This study investigates various areas of the Bacon's philosophy and aims to demonstrate the effect of his opinions on the birth of the environmental crises. It is argued that Francis Bacon is in the category of ethics which endorses anthropocentrism.
