France Blaise Pascal June 19 August 19 ) was a French mathematician physicist , and religious philosopher . Pascal was a child prodigy , who was educated by his father. Pascal's earliest work was in the natural and applied sciences , where he made important contributions to the construction of mechanical calculators and the study of fluids , and clarified the concepts of pressure and vacuum by expanding the work of Evangelista Torricelli . Pascal also wrote powerfully in defence of the scientific method He was a mathematician of the first order. In mathematics , Pascal helped create two major new areas of research. He wrote a significant treatise on the subject of projective geometry at the age of sixteen and corresponded with Pierre de Fermat from on probability theory , strongly influencing the development of modern economics and social science Following a mystical experience in late , he left mathematics and physics and devoted himself to reflection and writing about philosophy and theology . His two most famous works date from this period: the Lettres provinciales and the Pens©es .

B C D ... Z by birthday from the calendar Credits and feedback Blaise Pascal (1623-1662) Mathematician, physicist, and theologian, inventor of the first digital calculator, who is often thought of as the ideal of classic French prose. Pascal lived in the time when Copernicus' discovery - that the earth moves round the sun - had made human beings insignificant factors in the new disenchanted world. Facing the immensity of the universe, Pascal felt horror - "The eternal silence of these infinite spaces terrifies me." For him the world seemed empty of ultimate meaning or significance without Christianity, which he defended against the assaults of freethinkers. While Montaigne lived at ease with skepticism, Pascal was tormented by religious doubt, and took the question Why are we here? "Pascal's disillusioned analysis of human bondage is sometimes interpreted to mean that Pascal was really and finally an unbeliever, who, in his despair, was incapable of enduring reality and enjoying the heroic satisfaction of the free man's worship of nothing. His despair, his disillusion, are, however, no illustration of personal weakness; they are perfectly objective, because they are essential moments in the progress of the intellectual soul; and for the type of Pascal they are the analogue of the drought, the dark night, which is an essential stage in the progress of the Christian mystic." (T.S. Eliot in

Provincial Letters

The French thinker, mathematician, and scientist Blaise Pascal has been credited not only with imaginative and subtle work in geometry and other branches of mathematics, but with profoundly influencing later generations of theologians and philosophers, and is considered one of the greatest minds in Western intellectual history. Pascal was born in Clermont-Ferrand on June 19, 1623, and his family settled in Paris in 1629. Under the tutelage of his father, Pascal soon proved himself a mathematical prodigy, mastering Euclid's Elements by the age of 12. At the age of 16 he formulated one of the basic theorems of projective geometry, known as Pascal's theorem and described in his Essai pour les coniques
In 1647, a few years after publishing

A prodigy in math, Blaise Pascal was a contemporary and rival of . In spite of years of ill health and a short life, Pascal accomplished quite a bit: he published a significant work on the geometry of conical sections when he was only sixteen; he invented a calculating machine by the time he was nineteen; he and Pierre de Fermat founded the modern theory of probability; he described the principle that is the basis for the hydraulic press (called Pascal's Law); and he proved that there was a vacuum above the atmosphere. Pascal had a religious conversion in the 1650s and devoted himself to religion instead of science. He is famous for what is called Pascal's Wager , and for the remark that history would have been different had Cleopatra 's nose been differently shaped.

Blaise Pascal Pascals Vater schickte ihn nicht in die Schule , sondern lieŸ ihn zuhause von seiner ¤lteren Schwester Jacqueline Pascal unterrichten . Blaise interessierte sich f¼r Mathematik und Naturwissenschaften , doch sein Vater legte mehr Wert auf Sprachen und Grammatik und enthielt ihm mathematische und naturwissenschaftliche Literatur vor. Blaise brachte sich dennoch wesentliche Grundz¼ge der Geometrie selbst bei. Im Alter von 16 Jahren verfasste er bereits seine erste wissenschaftliche Abhandlung, mit der er die Lehre der Kegelschnitte begr¼ndete. Unter anderem beinhaltete die Arbeit ein wesentliches Ergebnis, welches heute als Satz von Pascal bekannt ist.
