- Publish Date: 2008-03-03

- Author: Charles Sherrard MacKenzie
This book focuses on Blaise Pascal's Penses, an apology for Christianity, which is regarded as Pascal's crowning achievement. Professor Charles Sherrard MacKenzie maintains that the lens best enabling us to understand Penses is his fragment on the three orders of life: mental, material, and spiritual. This analysis also highlights the frustrations Pascal encountered while making scientific discoveries, as part of his quest for certainty in his and others' faith.
