|Pascal for Our Time
|New York : [s.n.]. 1966
|I have, in fact, just been reading Romano Guardini's excellent little book on Pascal. He analyzes the "demon of combativeness" in Pascal - a demon which is no prerogative of Jansenists. At times one wonders if a certain combativeness is not endemic in Catholicism: a "compulsion to be always right" and to prove the adversary wrong. A compulsion which easily leads to witch hunting and which, when turned the wrong way, hunts its witches in the Church herself and finally needs to find them in Rome.
