Blaise Pascal

Join the Harvard Club of San Antonio Book Club on Tuesday, May 4 (POSTPONED from original April 6 date), at 6:30pm-8:00pm for a discussion of:

Of the Necessity of the Wager


It is my honor to invite all our Crimson friends to our Spring 2021 Harvard Club of San Antonio Book Club! Channeling the spirit of Harvard President Emeritus Charles W. Eliot (serving 1869-1909), we will be reading and discussing selections from the Harvard Classics. It has long been a hope that careful and cautious study of classical texts can help humanize our conversations while maintaining critical analysis of past and present predicaments. 

Following our exploration of The Philosophers and Of the Means of Belief  (Sections VI and IV of the Pensées), our HCSA Book Club will grapple with the Of the Necessity of the Wager (Section III of the Pensées of 17th-century mathematician/theologian Blaise Pascal). Although (intentionally?) fragmentary, Pascal's writings have provoked thought and more in-depth inquiry into the human condition for the last 350 years.

When:  On Tuesday, May 4, 6:30-8:00 p.m.
