Pensees (Penguin Classics)

Pensées - Blaise Pascal, A.J. Krailsheimer Next in my series of personal enrichment (leveling-up)...

Pascal-- I'll wager you've heard of this one.

Like Descartes, Pascal does a great job of bridging the philosophy of the greeks with christianity (although Pascal slams Descartes for not including more christian thought)

So I liked this one. I found it eminently quotable. I'm not the sort of person that likes, keeps, or shares quotes, but if I were, I'd be all over this.

Also, I've mentioned in a few of these other reviews, religion has always taken the role in my thought processes that philosophy might (or should, or whatever), so it's easy for me to watch Pascal use religious and philosophical arguments in the same breath. That makes sense to me, although I can see how others might not see it that way.

...anyways, I liked it. I'd quote it, but the book is in the next room, and I'm too lazy to get it. It's not five stars because it was still not a very enjoyable read-- that's not fair, but it's how I rate 'em.
