Pascal in this work manifests a profound and damaged soul. He is a real giant of the heart and mind. And as a pronounced atheist, i nevertheless regard this work as one of the most insightful and honest books i've ever read. Definitely not for the feint-hearted, this book is very dark in places and also quite fearless. Pascal is a kind of Nietzschean Christian, someone who reflects with his whole being and, unlike most thinkers, someone who actually takes thinking very seriously. A wonderful, if heartbreaking, book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nobody wrote better than Blaise Pascal. 27 Aug 1998
By A Customer
A great physicist, mathematician, writer and theologist, Pascal was also the inventor, and builder, of the first calculating machine. Pensees is of a rarely attained beauty. To reach its equal you must go to the very best poetry.To wit: "Le silence eternel de ces espaces infinies m'effraie", that is, the eternal silence of these infinite spaces frightens me. The rest is silence, as his equally talented fellow said.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Haven't read it all yet but so far its great. The translation is a good one. IT is full of quotable s. I love the way this man thought. It is surprisingly easy to read. Here is one of my favourite quotes, 'The heart has reason that reason knows not of' Shall keep dipping into it.

This book was in great condition and is a brilliant and fascinating read. Its format makes it easy to dip in and out of it, and leaves you feeling able to read 'just a bit more' each time.
