Pensees important, this a decent edition

by Blazed on Apr 4, 2007

Because of the nature of the fragments left to us, forming an edition of Pascal's Pensees remains a tremendous task. There have been handed down several systems of arranging the scattered fragments, and so one can find multiple versions (see for example that published by Harvard, by Penguin, and this by Oxford). This Oxford edition isn't the clearest edition, and due to some abridgement, if often leaves the reader confused about when a new fragment begins. But the Pensees are invaluable for any interested in philosophy and religion, or in 17th century polemics, philosophy, or theology. But this reader would recommend the Penguin or Harvard editions over the Oxford. Whichever you choose, the Pensees will promise to be a very beneficial read, and are an important work in many questions of religion, philosophy, and science.
