Topic- The Principles of Philosophy vs. The Wager; Le Monde vs. The Disproportion of Man — Descartes and Pascal appear at either end of the spectrum of positions concerning what the limits of our capacity to know with certainty the nature of the universe and of God. Descartes proves the existence of God and the geometrical foundations of physics. Pascal says that caught between the two abysses of the infinite and the infinitesimal, we can only know a semblance of the “midst of things,” so we must end up relying on experience or experiment. How do both express and attempt to resolve “the crisis of authority” (or “crisis of certainty”) in the Scientific Revolution?
