Blaise Pascal Quotes

Blaise Pascal (1623 – 1662)

Blaise Pascal (1623 – 1662) was a French mathematician, physicist, inventor, writer and Catholic theologian. He was a child prodigy who was educated by his father. Pascal’s early work, in the fields of hydrodynamics and hydrostatics, centered on the principles of hydraulic fluids. His inventions include the hydraulic press and the syringe. Pascal was an important mathematician. He wrote a significant treatise on the subject of projective geometry at the age of 16, and later his correspondence on probability theory strongly influenced the development of modern economics and social science. Pascal’s most influential theological work, referred to posthumously as the Pensees (“Thoughts”), is a collection of fragments on theology and philosophy.
