Intended to convert religiously indifferent readers to Christianity, Pascal's Pensees were published posthumously to wide and ongoing acclaim. This selection of highlights from the Pensees focuses on their most secular aspects, including extensive coverage of the author's sensitive examination of human psychology and his much-appreciated epigrams. Pascal's Provincial Letters, written in 1656 and 1657 in support of the Jansenist cause, captivated a large audience (including opponents of the cause) with their satirical wit, righteous indignation, and effervescent style. This is the only dual-language edition available.
