Pensées (unabridged)

Audio Sample

Blaise Pascal


Read by Peter Wickham


Intended to be a defence of the Christian religion, Pensées is a penetrating collection of thoughts on faith, reason and theology. Unfinished at the time of Pascal’s death, the book consists of philosophical fragments on the ‘wretchedness’ of man and the controversial schisms of the church at the time. It includes the philosopher’s infamous wager encouraging belief over agnosticism, as well as his thoughts on numerous other topics, including the great essayist Montaigne and the Stoic teacher Epictetus. Endlessly quotable, Pensées overflows with pearls of wisdom, each elusive sentence pregnant with a universe of thought.
