Quick Reference

(1706–90)

Although Franklin's distinction rests on his work as a scientist and statesman, his homely moral and political philosophy, particularly as expounded in Poor Richard's Almanack (1733–58), has been extremely influential as an expression of a folksy, democratic virtue ethic.
