Two caricatures, I: Pascal's Wager


Authors
James Franklin
University of New South Wales
Abstract
Pascal’s wager and Leibniz’s theory that this is the best of all possible worlds are latecomers in the Faith-and-Reason tradition. They have remained interlopers; they have never been taken as seriously as the older arguments for the existence of God and other themes related to faith and reason.
