Pensees

By Pascal, Blaise

Description
Excerpt: SECTION I: THOUGHTS ON MIND AND ON STYLE 1. The difference between the mathematical and the intuitive mind. In the one, the principles are palpable, but removed from ordinary use; so that for want of habit it is difficult to turn one?s mind in that direction: but if one turns it thither ever so little, one sees the principles fully, and one must have a quite inaccurate mind who reasons wrongly from principles so plain that it is almost impossible they should escape notice.
