JOURNAL OF THE EARLY REPUBLIC (Spring 2014) readers may wonder about the point of Lorraine Smith Pangle's ``Ben Franklin and Socrates.'' At the outset, she concedes that the two were worlds apart in most respects; at the end, she seems to say they are worlds apart in all respects, with ``Franklin's case'' in the end demonstrating little more than how difficult it is ``to embrace wholeheartedly the strange Socratic teaching that virtue is knowledge'' (150). Yet this collection remains useful. Taken together, the essays explore interesting new questions about Franklin and about the ways in which we should study his complicated career and voluminous body of writings. The editors' extensive bibliography will also be useful for advanced undergraduates and graduate students intent on beginning serious study of Franklin. Ri char d F.
