Pascal for our Time
I've been dipping back into an old love of late, Pascal's Pensees, in association with a (long overdue!) review I'm writing of William Desmond's very Pascalian Is There a Sabbath for Thought? Between Religion and Philosophy. So it was fortuitous when Nathan Bierma asked if I would write a little ode to Pascal for his Newsletter for the Christian Classics Ethereal Library (CCEL)--an immense resource of ancient, medieval and early modern texts. You can read it here.
