About the book:

'If we submit everything to reason our religion will be left with nothing mysterious or supernatural

Blaise Pascal, the precociously brilliant contemporary of Descartes, was a gifted mathematician and physicist, but it is his unfinished apologia for the Christian religion upon which his reputation now rests. The PenseÚs is a collection of philosophical fragments, notes and essays in which Pascal explores the contradictions of human nature in psychological, social, metaphysical andabove alltheological terms. Mankind emerges from Pascals analysis as a wretched and desolate creature within an impersonal universe, but who can be transformed through faith in Gods grace.

This masterly translation conveys Pascals disarmingly personal tone and captures all the fire and passion of the original. Also contained in this volume are a comparison between different editions, appendices and a bibliography.
