013. Benjamin Franklin Regarded Confucius Highly
I have to agree with Dr. Dave Wang's solid judgment that Benjamin Franklin loved Confucius moral philosophy. With this post, I would like to show you a quote from Benjamin Franklin. In 1749 Franklin wrote an very important letter to George Whitefield (1714-1770) , a leader of the American Great Wakening, declaring that he regarded Confucius moral philosophy is universal. The philosophy belongs to not only China, but the whole world also. The entire human beings can benefit from Confucius's teaching.
