Abstract: So far some papers in the project have been published at home and abroad, including “Benjamin Franklin and the Great Wall of China,” “Benjamin Franklin and Chinese Civilization,” and “Benjamin Franklin and China: A Survey of Benjamin Franklin’s Efforts at Drawing Positive Elements from Chinese Civilization during the Formative Age of the United States.” This pioneering research has won me international repute. Some of my published papers have been translated into international languages including Italian and Chinese. In the meantime I have also been invited to present my research results, such as Benjamin Franklin and Confucius Moral Philosophy, and The Founding Fathers of the United States and Chinese Civilization in China, Italy and Portugal in addition to the United States.
