Recovering Benjamin Franklin: An Exploration of a Life of Science and Service
James Campbell (au)
Benjamin Franklin, a great philosopher? James Campbell, a Professor of Philosophy & one of the foremost authorities on Pragmatism, argues that the image of Franklin as cultural icon & ingenious dabbler has concealed his strictly philosophical achievement. After a detailed examination of Franklin’s surprisingly rich conceptions in four areas -- science, religion, morality, & politics -- Professor Campbell identifies Franklin as an early figure in the Pragmatic movement, his contribution similar in importance to those of Emerson, James, & Dewey. Campbell’s book is learned, balanced, & informative. His section on ‘Equality, Race, & Slavery’ has been praised as “philosophical biography at its best, fairly & fascinatingly written.”
