Pensees

By Blaise Pascal & H. F. Stewart
Narrated by William Sutherland / 12 hours 51 minutes

Compiled after his death in 1662, Pascal's "pensees" (thoughts) are his ideas for a book in defense of faith in a rational world. These fragments give evidence of a profoundly original thinker who had resolved the conflict between his scientific mind and heart-felt faith. The book begins with an analysis of the difference between mathematical and intuitive thinking and goes on to consider the value of skepticism, contradictions, feeling, memory and imagination. Much of the value of Pensees results from the clarity with which Pascal was able to present his intuitive thoughts. Pascal spent much of his life composing this magnum opus, which offers some of the most powerful aphorisms about human experience and behavior ever written.
