Benjamin Franklin and the American dream are often associated with the uninhibited pursuit of money. Nothing could be further from the truth, argues UC San Diego political scientist Alan Houston. To Franklin, the good life - a life of improvement - was spent pursuing knowledge, cultivating friendship, advancing freedom, and addressing human needs. Houston's presentation is the first of a seven-part lecture series exploring the meaning of the good life, sponsored by The Making of the Modern World program at UC San Diego. (#25949)
