Benjamin Franklin
Videos, Press, Reviews


 Benjamin Franklin (1706 - 1790) embodied the ideals of the

Enlightenment. He worked for universal education and

healthcare, respect for science and appreciation of cultural

differences. He helped shape the 18th Century from the time of superstition and tyrants to that of a modern democratic republic.
He strengthened a free press

and gave us inventions that still advance us today.
Almost everything we see has his stamp on it.
But do his wisdoms still have lessons for us?

 Can we still be guided by his intellectual compass?

 Walter Isaacson calls Franklin “the most accomplished American of his age and the most influential in inventing the type of society America would become.”

Come visit with Dr Franklin.
See how well he still fits into our world and discover what

guidance he still has for us.
