Description - Blaise Pascal by Mary Ann Caws

This book, which includes a preface by Tom Conley, covers many aspects of Blaise Pascal's life and work that are seldom found side by side: his religious motivations and his belief in miracles, his scientific passions, his practical savvy and the aphorisms of the Pensees , so influential worldwide. This is a valuable account of a fascinating figure of the early modern period, and will interest a wide audience for the history of mathematics, philosophy, religion and science.
