Description

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, each elusive sentence pregnant with a universe of thought.

Excellent Audiobook!

Here is yet another great audiobook production by Naxon. The translation from the French language into English, which was used in this audiobook is truly exceptional. Also, Peter Wickham having read the text, was the crowning achievement; indeed it was superlative!

I found in listening to this audiobook, that Blaise Pascal had a great deal of insight, which thanks to the excellent English translation, was made available to me. It is always of interest to me, to observe the differences between our thinking, and that of those who lived centuries before us! It is becoming more and more clear to me, that men in earlier times reasoned differently, but in a nuanced way. Put differently; we work with that which we have.
