What People are Saying About This

William L. Rowe
Pascal's Wager raises basic questions concerning rationality and prudence, the morality of believing without sufficient evidence, and a variety of issues in decision theory. In this excellent collection of essays many of these basic questions are exploredwith great clarity and at considerable depth. A fine introduction to the Wager and the essays is provided by Jeff Jordan. This is a remarkably good book. It will serve faculty and students well....
Nicholas Rescher
This is a well-conceived anthology that vividly brings to life the fertility and interest of the issues revolving around Pascal's celebrated argument.....
