Pascal and Voltaire

Product Description

Author Patrick Hunt

ISBN 9781942614227

Pages 71 

Pascal (1623-1662) and Voltaire (1694-1778) were two of the most influential thinkers of the broader Enlightenment Era. Although their lifetimes did not overlap, they shared common interests. However, their very different philosophical perspectives would have strongly clashed. What might a conversation between the two of them have been if they had met at the famed Parisian Cafe Procope (or perhaps in a "waiting"room after death, one that at least to Voltaire resembled the famous Enlightenment cafe)? In this play touching on topics as diverse as literature, logic, religion, rationalism, mathematics, and metaphysics, Patrick Hunt imagines a creative and stimulating dialogue between these great minds. His work challenges and encourages readers to consider their own world views.
