Shows how Ben Franklin embodied the Enlightenment values of industry, progress, and scientific thought. Recounts Franklin's fervent belief in liberty and discusses how he fostered-with Locke, Rousseau, Paine, Jefferson, and many others-the spread of new ideas about the responsibilities of the government to the governed. Discusses the widespread belief that ordinary human beings could solve any problem and illustrates how this idea gave rise to the Industrial Revolution and the American and French Revolutions. Demonstrates how the printing press enabled the mass circulation of cheap literature in the form of newspapers, magazines, short stories, informal essays, comedies of manners, and political pamphlets that spread new political ideas quickly.
