Benjamin Franklin And The Changing World of 18th Century American Society

Paulo Warth Gick

Abstract


It is my intention in this paper to present some aspects of
the work and thoughts of Benjamin Franklin which reflect the
Puritan tradition from which he sprang. In some of his literary
production, Franklin mirrors the great changes that occurred in
Puritanism, from an elevated theological level into a practical
utilitarian approach of more popular nature.
