Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Intended to prove that religion is not contrary to reason, Pensées ranks among the liveliest and most eloquent defenses of Christianity. Pascal had intended to write an ambitious apologia for Christianity but his untimely death prevented the work's completion. The fragments remain a vital part of religious and philosophical literature. Introduction by T. S. Eliot.

The writings are a defense of his Jansenist Christianity and an attack on the ability of reason to answer the most fundamental problems of metaphysics. An introduction by poet T.S. Eliot offers a brief intellectual biography of Pascal and commends his defense of religious belief. This is a paperbound reproduction of the original 1958 Trotter translation.
