Blaise Pascal, the precociously brilliant contemporary of Descartes, was a gifted mathematician and physicist, but it is his unfinished apologia for the Christian religion upon which his reputation now rests. The Penseés is a collection of philosohical fragments, notes and essays in which Pascal explores the contradictions of human nature in pscyhological, social, metaphysical and - above all - theological terms. Mankind emerges from Pascal's analysis as a wretched and desolate creature within an impersonal universe, but who can be transformed through faith in God's grace.

Pensées and Other Writings

For much of his life Pascal (1623-62) worked on a magnum opus which was never published in its intended form. Instead, he left a mass of fragments, some of them meant as notes for the Apologie. These were to become known as the Pensees, and they occupy a crucial place in Western philosophy and religious writing. Pascal's general intention was to confound scepticism about metaphysical questions. Some of the Pensees are fully developed literary reflections on the human condition,, somecontradict others, and some remain jottings whose meaning will never be clear. The most important are among the most powerful aphorisms about human experience and behaviour ever written in any language. This translation is the only one based on the Pensees as Pascal left them. It includes the principal dossiers classified by Pascal, as well as the essential portion of the important Writings on Grace. A detailed thematic index gives access to Pascal's areas of concern, while the selectionof texts and the introduction help to show why Pascal changed the plan of his projected work before abandoning the book he might have written.

Das Universalgenie Blaise Pascal gehört zu den schillerndsten Gestalten der Philosophiegeschichte. Ein religiöser Denker, der kein Theologe ist, ein Mathematiker und Physiker von hohem Rang, ein Anwalt der Vernunft ("Unsere ganze Würde besteht im Denken"). Nach seinem Tod fand man mehr als achthundert Notizzettel. Diese "Gedanken" in aphoristischer Form haben die Geistesgeschichte erschüttert. Pascal erweist sich darin als äußerst scharfsinniger Denker der menschlichen Existenz und beeinflusste damit die Romantik, die Existenzphilosophie sowie die Philosophiegeschichte bis in die Gegenwart. "So verrinnt das ganze Leben: man sucht die Ruhe, indem man einige Schwierigkeiten, die uns hindern, überwinden will; und hat man sie überwunden, dann wird die Ruhe unerträglich." Was Pascal hier beschreibt, ist noch immer für die meisten Zeitgenossen gültig. Kein Autor des 17. Jahrhunderts ist "moderner", nüchterner und zugleich als Mensch uns näher als Pascal. Pascals "Gedanken" liegen hier vollständig in einer völlig neuen Übersetzung vor. Sie korrigiert fehlerhafte Wiedergaben früherer Übersetzungen und beeindruckt durch Präzision und sprachliche Eleganz.

Phyllis Reeves never married. But that didn't mean that she didn't have feelings. Those feelings were inspired by La Nature, Émotions, L'Amour, Les Voyages, and Les Chats. She labors at length in personifying nature around her, showering adoration on her cats, asking the big questions of the universe, yearning to be loved, expressing desires to make her life mean something all in seemingly simple poems. They reveal the need to connect with her environment, in spite of much loneliness she experienced in life. When reading her poems, we find the true Phyllis. Enjoy this collection of French poetry and let it be an inspiration to you to find your sensitive side, to use poetry to express your feelings, whatever they may be.
