Description
"We all have certain images of Ben Franklin: the witty Founding Father who promoted independence; the Philadelphia printer who created Poor Richard's Almanack; the scientist who conducted experiments with kites in electrical storms; the author of what is arguably America's best-known autobiography. These images reveal an intellectually curious and successful man of the 18th century, but they don't fully capture the full spirit of one of the most extraordinary Americans-perhaps the quintessential American. Why is Benjamin Franklin so compelling' What made him so successful in his day' And why has he continued to influence generations of Americans' Tackle these questions and more in The Age of Benjamin Franklin, a thorough-and sometimes surprising-course that presents a full portrait of a personality that defies easy definition. Taught by Professor Robert J. Allison of Suffolk University, these 24 insightful lectures explore the many facets of Franklin's life and times. From his humble beginnings as the son of a Boston soap maker to a world-renowned diplomat, you'll explore the many sides of this complex man: ambitious, worldly, imaginative, and forward thinking, representing the best output from the Age of Enlightenment. As one of the most notable Americans in history-a pioneer in science, politics, and diplomacy-he was truly a larger-than-life individual. The Age of Benjamin Franklin gives you a rich and entertaining portrait of his life and times."
