Though informative, over three-quarters of the treatment is concerned with Descartes, leaving very little room for Bacon and leaving Modern Philosophy as an after thought tacked on as a closing paragraph. There's also problems with the recording at certain points throughout making it quite irritating to listen to at times.
If you want to learn more about Descartes than Bacon this is probably good as an introduction, but don't expect much else.
"More Descartes than Bacon"
Very detailed (and accurate) summary of Descartes's philosophy. Much less info about Bacon.
