Description:

But what about this book? We could say that the efforts of the two authors are centered around an important notion of Pascal’s thought, namely the imagination. But, starting from this topic, the authors of the book manage to conclude the whole paschalian thought. As I said, there are some paschalian themes that attract more than others, which are better known. This author is “fragmented”, that is, we do not have a complete picture of his entire thinking, of how his mathematical conception is ultimately linked to the ecstatic searches of God. (Pompiliu ALEXANDRU)
