Description
1677 Blaise Pascal PENSEES Christian Apologetic Pascal’s Wager French Philosophy

“Men despise religion. They hate it and are afraid it may be true. The cure for this is first to show that religion is not contrary to reason, but worthy of reverence and respect. Next make it attractive, make good men wish it were true, and then show that it is.”

– Pascal, Pensees

Blaise Pascal’s thoughts, organized as “Pensees,” were written as a collection of writings on theology and philosophy. ‘Pensees’ was a culmination of all of Pascal’s non-mathematic discoveries and ideas which ultimately led him to a life of religious asceticism. He defended Christianity in this work. In doing so, it ‘became one of the most famous Christian books in history.’ (Keller, Gospel Coalition). ‘Pascal was aware that, very often, we see only what we want to see’ (Morris, 145) and because of that, he hoped to be able to ‘convince man to overcome the natural reluctance many feel toward religion.’ The concept of “Pascal’s Wager” stems from a portion of this work.
