      EVENT DETAILS
      Ben Franklin Circles

      Join us monthly, every first Wednesday, for a 21st-century version of Ben Franklin’s mutual improvement club. One evening a week, for more than 40 years, the founding father discussed and debated with his friends the 13 virtues that he felt formed the basis for personal and civic improvement, a list he created when he was 20 years old. The virtues to which he aspired included justice, resolution and humility. (But don't misunderstand Ben on that one—his explanation of humility was "imitate Jesus and Socrates.") The Ben Franklin Circles program brings people together to discuss the most pressing philosophical and ethical issues of our time with the goal of improving ourselves and our world.  Location: 110 The Embarcadero, San Francisco Time: 6 p.m. check-in, 6:30 p.m. program MLF: Humanities Program organizer: George Hammond All ticket sales are final and nonrefundable.
