Intended to be a defense of the Christian religion, Pensées is a penetrating collection of thoughts on faith, reason and theology. Unfinished at the time of Pascal’s death, the book consists of philosophical fragments on the ‘wretchedness’ of man and the controversial schisms of the church at the time. It includes the philosopher’s infamous wager encouraging belief over agnosticism, as well as his thoughts on numerous other topics, including the great essayist Montaigne and the Stoic teacher Epictetus. Endlessly quotable, Pensées overflows with pearls of wisdom, with each elusive sentence pregnant with a universe of thought.

Author Bio: Blaise Pascal

Blaise Pascal (1623–1662) was a French philosopher, mathematician, physicist, and theologian, as well as a writer whose brilliant command of the language marked him as a master of French prose. His early, anonymous masterpiece Les Lettres Provinciales became the model for Voltaire’s polemics. Pascal’s Pensées, his last great work, remained unfinished at the time of his death at age thirty-nine.
