A noção de perspectivismo na filosofia de Blaise Pascal
Pinto, Rodrigo Hayasi
MetadataShow full item record
The aim of this thesis is to understand Blaise Pascal's philosophical conception of science and morality on the basis of a more fundamental notion the notion of perspectivism. By not basing knowledge on ultimate and absolute terms, the French philosopher pointed the way to a new kind of knowledge, no longer guided by metaphysics, but by a hypotheticaldeductive ideal. This new kind of knowledge was to have provisional principles as points of departure, their rôle being that of epistemological perspectives in the sphere of science and practice.
