Description
 
Benjamin Franklin and his fellow thinkers of the Enlightenment are among the most intriguing people in history. In nearly all areas -- science, politics, social justice, philosophy, medicine -- these men and women revolutionized the world around them. Even by our standards, their ideas seem inspired and inspiring. But that doesn’t mean these revolutionaries didn’t have their factions. Often bitter, even murderous disagreements fractured their ranks. Standing at their center and ultimately uniting them all was the towering figure of Ben Franklin. This volume illuminates the work of these extraordinary visionaries, whose progressive ideas and ideals still ring true. The author uses anecdotes and short histories to engage the reader, and he roots it all in intense scholarship. Illustrations.
