    Intended to be a defense 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. Endlessly quotable, Pensées overflows with pearls of wisdom, each elusive sentence pregnant with a universe of thought.

    Compiled after his death in 1662, Pascal's "pensées" (thoughts) are his ideas for a book in defense of faith in a rational world. These fragments give evidence of a profoundly original thinker who had resolved the conflict between his scientific mind and heart-felt faith. This audiobook begins with an analysis of the difference between mathematical and intuitive thinking and goes on to consider the value of skepticism, contradictions, feeling, memory, and imagination.

    Mathématicien et philosophe, Blaise Pascal est un des plus grands esprits n'ayant jamais existé. Il publia un traité de géométrie projective à l'âge de 16 ans, avant d'inventer la machine à calculer pour aider son père dans ses travaux. On doit à Pascal des avancées importantes dans le domaine des sciences, de la méthode scientifique, du calcul des probabilités, et de la philosophie. Ses Pensées sont une œuvre majeure retrouvée sur des feuillets épars, et qui touchent de nombreux paradoxes : infini et néant, âme et matière, foi et raison.

    Pascal reste unique, non pas tant qu'il est, selon Paul Valéry, une des plus fortes intelligences qui aient paru, mais par sa fougue, par son élan, par cette agressivité qui empoigne l'âme de l'auditeur.

    Als der Philosoph Blaise Pascal 1662 starb, hinterließ er der Menschheit eine rund tausendseitige Zettelwirtschaft, gut verschnürt in sechzig handlichen Stapeln. Die Fragmente sind Gott und vor allem dem Menschen gewidmet, der nicht aus purer Vernunft handele, sondern sich stattdessen durch Schwächen und Ungewissheiten auszeichne. In seinen "Gedanken" stellt der tiefreligiöse Blaise Pascal die großen Fragen der Menschheit. Eine bis heute faszinierende Lektüre, die jeden Menschen herausfordert und bereichert.

    The Little and the Great Things includes a reading of the eponymous prayer followed by beautiful piano music based on an original composition of Frederic Chopin. The piano composition includes Nocturne in G Major, Op. 37 No. 2 - Andantino. The nocturne is painted with Chopin's most ethereal brush, characterised by beautiful sensuousness and luscious soft, rounded tones, and not without a certain degree of languor.

    Blaise Pascal, grand philosophe du XVIIème siècle, fut à la fois mathématicien, géomètre, physicien et théologien. "Les Pensées" de Pascal, écrites tout au long de sa vie (il est mort à l'âge de 39 ans), ont été réunies et éditées de manière posthume. Il s'adresse à un libertin qui préfère se consacrer à ses plaisirs plutôt qu'au salut de son âme. Scientifique et fervent chrétien, il lui explique pourquoi, selon lui, "parier" est nécessaire.
