Editorial Reviews


The collection of ten papers in Benjamin Franklin's Intellectual World is a useful addition to the Franklin scholarship that has been accumulating in the early twenty-first century. It features several pieces that developed out of a conference hosted by the University of Cambridge at the Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences, and Humanities, in March 2007. ... The ten papers in Benjamin Franklin's Intellectual World bring to light a figure of inexhaustible richness and importance. (Journal of the Early Republic)

Benjamin Franklin's Intellectual World is a collection of excellent essays. (The Eighteenth-Century Intelligencer)

This volume contributes to the growing body of scholarship that seeks to trace the contours of certain aspects of Franklin's intellectual world and argues in fresh ways that Franklin was a thinker of profound depth. Several of the essays in this volume explore how Franklin's political and philosophical thinking was informed, while examining the deep appeal that Franklin has had on generation after generation of Americans.
