Editorial Reviews

Review


"This work offers the most comprehensive treatment of its topic in any language. Central to Tutino's purpose is to rescue probabilism from the condescension of posterity. For her, it is high time that Pascal's association of probabilism with moral duplicity and decadence was jettisoned and replaced by an awareness of the central role played by probabilism in managing uncertainty in the face of the new challenges to Roman Catholic moral theology posed by a geographically and intellectually expanding world."--Simon Ditchfield, Professor of Early Modern History, University of York


"Stefania Tutino combines a sharp focus on the concept of probability with an abundance of carefully researched detail to bring a forgotten epoch in the history of epistemology to light. If you are looking for a path-breaking study of the early modern Catholic turn to probability as a criterion of theoretical, theological, and moral certainty, look no further. This is it. It lays the stereotype of 'Jesuitic casuistry' to rest and provides a little sanity for our time." --Constantin Fasolt, Karl J. Weintraub Professor Emeritus of History, University of Chicago
