    Blaise Pascal - Acting Like a Tyrant - Sadler's Shorts

    Blaise Pascal - Acting Like a Tyrant - Sadler's Shorts

    This is a short reflection on an insightful passage from Blaise Pascal's Pensees, section 332, in which he reflects upon the nature of tyranny, which he interprets as demanding what is not one's due. This is often the case for people who are outstanding in one respect, and who unjustly demand respect or priority on some other grounds.

Hans Hoffa ,

What a gift to humanity

I’m delighted to find this on the podcasts section. You’re superb. I wonder if you would do episodes on Cicero’s On Duties, Pufendorf, and Burke.
