Stanford University: Dr. Desmond Clarke's "Blaise Pascal"
Read this article on the life and works of Blaise Pascal. As you read, consider the role that Pascal's particular brand of Christianity plays in his rather negative view of human nature. Pay special attention to section 6 of the article, titled "Pascal
and Human Existence". Then, ask yourself whether you agree that it is correct and/or justified to call Pascal an "existentialist".
