Book Description

A short biography of Blaise Pascal, famous for his published works on the arithmetical triangle, on wagers and the theory of probabilities, and on the roulette or cycloid. Another curious argument of Pascal's is that which is known as the argument of the wager. God exists or He does not exist, and we must of necessity lay odds for or against Him.
• If I wager for and God is -- infinite gain;
• If I wager for and God is not -- no loss.
• If I wager against and God is -- infinite loss;
• If I wager against and God is not -- neither loss nor gain.
