... as the books of the Sibyls and Trismegistus, and so many others which have
been believed by the world, are false, and found to be false in the course of time.
It is not so with contemporaneous writers. There is a great difierence between a
book which an individual writes, and publishes to a nation, and a book which

Pensees. Penguin Classics, 1995 (1669). 368 pp. ISBN 0140446451. Pensees is
French for ''thoughts.'' This work by Catholic philosopher and mathematician
Blaise Pascal (1623–1662) is a collection of thoughts and writing fragments that
Pascal was not able to finish before his early death at the age of thirty-nine.

wager,'' which basically says, if you bet your life that God exists and you are right,
then you ...

I'll be quoting from the Lafuma edition, as translated primarily by Alban
Krailsheimer {Pensees, Penguin Classics Edition). The individual notes are
numbered, and this numbering differs from that used in the older Brunsvig edition

is a collection of notes for a book and not a book itself — the Pensees can be
hard to read cover-to-cover. Brilliant insights flash from all directions, but there
are also many ...

represented the Roman Church's official disengagement from, and even
repudiation of, Augustinian orthodoxy on grace and freedom, an intriguing thesis
that also cannot be analyzed or criticized here. 73. For example, in the Pensées
