"This treatise on natural religion examines the following questions: (i) is there really any such thing as natural religion, properly and truly so called? (ii) if there is, what is it? and (iii) how may a man qualify himself, so as to be able to judge, for himself, of the other religions professed in the world; to settle his own opinions in disputable matters; and then to enjoy tranquility of mind, neither disturbing others, nor being disturbed at what passes among them? In addition, the nature of moral good and evil is a theme that is advanced throughout the papers appearing in this book"--Book. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2008 APA, all rights reserved)

"Benjamin Franklin's Autobiography ends in 1758, some thirty years before he died. Those three decades included some of the statesman's greatest triumphs, yet instead of including them in his memoir, Franklin spent the years continually revising his original text." "Franklin on Franklin stands as the first autobiographical account of a great American life. By returning to a newly recovered early draft of the Autobiography, author Paul M. Zall strips away later layers of moralizing and revision to reveal the story as Franklin first wrote it: how a poor boy from Boston used hard work and his wits to become America's first world-class citizen. To cover Franklin's career as a diplomat and as the only signatory of all threes key documnents of the American Revolution, Zall interweaves autobiographical comments from Franklin's personal letters and private journals."--Jacket
Cato Maior de senectute by Marcus Tullius Cicero( )

4 editions published between 1758 and 1778 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a complete critical edition of Cicero's Cato Maior de Senectute (On Old Age) with an introduction and commentary. The text is based on a fresh examination of the manuscript tradition while the introduction aims to place the work in the context of Cicero's writings on old age in the ancient world. The Roman and Ciceronian qualities of the work are emphasized, rather than the search for lost sources that occupied scholars in the past. Matters of text, language, and content are all considered equally in the commentary
