Many of the arguments that Pascal makes for belief are frankly bad. He notes, for example, that Christianity has been around since the beginning of the world—something that only a convinced young-earther could believe nowadays.
There are many passages about the Jews, most of which are difficult to read. But what kind of divine justice is it to sacrifice a whole people, intentionally blinding them to the truth? Indeed, virtually every statement Pascal makes about other religions reveals both an ignorance and a hostility greatly unbecoming of the man. But, if we look closely, it is easy to distinguish the true religion amidst all this confusion. The ability to see the prophesy differentiates those to whom God sheds light, and those whom God blinds. Once again, therefore, we have this strangely cruel conception of God, as a Being which arbitrarily prevents His creatures from seeing the truth.
As I think is clear from the frantic tone, and the many different and contradictory ways that Pascal tries to justify belief, he himself was not fully convinced by any of them. His final desperate intellectual move is to abandon the principle of logical consistency altogether. But, as you can see, I found the opposite to be true. To the contrary, one regrets that such a fine mind was driven to such a self-destructive fixation.
Still, this book deserves its canonical status. And, though Pascal falls short of Montaigne in many respects, he is able to capture the one element of experience forbidden to the benign essayist: an all-consuming despair.

It is difficult to decide what to say upon reading The Pensees of Blaise Pascal. The fragments, some resembling aphorisms with a few extending to several pages of prose, were left disorganized and unedited at Pascal's death. Readers have pondered over The Pensees literally thoughts ever since trying to interpret them and discern some semblance of a world view from them.
In my reading I also tried to comprehend the fragmentary comments and found the views of Monsieur Pascal, to the extent that It is difficult to decide what to say upon reading The Pensees of Blaise Pascal. In my reading I also tried to comprehend the fragmentary comments and found the views of Monsieur Pascal, to the extent that I understand them, to be foreign to my own views of life. For Pascal the human condition is wretched with man's reason a frail thing on which life ultimately cannot depend.
The overwhelming importance of such concepts as immortality and original sin imbue his world view with a supernatural and other-worldly outlook that is difficult to reconcile with reality. Perhaps his personal physical ailments were the source of his view that man in general shared his hatred of the human body. Of the many thinkers who have contemplated Pascal over the years since his Pensees were left to us in , Voltaire expresses thoughts close to my own when he says, "Nature does not make us unhappy all the time.
Pascal always speaks like a sick man who wants the entire world to suffer. Pascal's Pensees". For Pascal unhappiness is our lot, the corruption of the body is complete and irredeemable, self esteem is to be abhorred, god's thoughts are impenetrable and yet, we would be better off if we accept the wager that he does exist.
Well I, for one, neither accept Mr. Pascal's worldview nor his wager.

Retirado de Critica na Rede. Por onde e obra e necessidade de quem me foram designados esse lugar e esse momento? Mas, mesmo que o universo o esmagasse, o homem seria ainda mais nobre do que quem o mata, porque sabe que morre e a vantagem que o universo tem sobre ele; o universo desconhece tudo isso.

Pascal's classic thoughts on numerous topics related to Christianity. This book is at times difficult to read, since he died before he finished it thus leaving many sections only outlined in note form. But slogging through those portions is worthwhile when you get to the good, thought-provoking parts.
In some ways Pascal reminds me of Kierkegaard since both were reasonable men who realized that it takes more than just reason alone to come to faith in Christ. Pascal's apologetic reflects this.

He Pascal's classic thoughts on numerous topics related to Christianity. He is most famous for his Wager, which is often castigated, probably because it is misunderstood. Pascal's Wager does not state, as some seem to think, that you should just believe in God because he might exist, even though such belief is unreasonable. Rather, Pascal's argument was that it is just as reasonable to believe as not to believe; reason cannot prove faith yet faith is not unreasonable.
Since reason alone places us in the middle, it is better to take the step in faith and trust in God. It also overflows with serious considerations. Not to be read fast or superficially. Unfortunately my first reading in the s was both. Therefore, this review will be in sections, as I read the major subdivisions of the text. This English translation available free on Project Gutenberg includes an excellent Introduction by Nobel laureate T.
Part Two. Now Pascal turns to his infamous wager. Here his argument becomes dense and philosophic. He was surrounded by mature, intelligent people who spent their entire life diverting themselves from the most important issue of life. After that, they boast of having made vain search in books and among men. This negligence is insufferable.cz.hekyreritane.ml
La résistance selon Ivan Illich
The doubter … is altogether completely unhappy and completely wrong. There are two kinds of people one can call reasonable; those who serve God with all their heart because they know Him, and those who seek Him with all their heart because they do not know Him. It is an image of the condition of men. Thereupon it reasons, and calls nature, necessity, and can believe nothing else.
