Blaise Pascal wanted a way to find the answer quickly, and find it he did, in the rows of his famous triangle. It begins with a 1. Below that, there are two more 1s. Pascal’s insight was that the process could be continued, with each number coming from the two above it, added together. ) This process is simple to do: just a little addition and no complicated algebra.

Many of Leibniz’s ideas foreshadow modern thought and theory in the fields of physics, technology, biology, medicine, geology, psychology, linguistics, politics, law, theology, history, philosophy and mathematics. He improved on Pascal’s calculating machine (anticipating the work of Babbage and Lovelace), developed binary theory that underpins modern digital technology, developed what we now know as Boolean algebra and symbolic logic, and outlined the concept of feedback that inspired Norbert Wiener.

In 1646, Pascal’s father fell ill and was nursed by Jansenist brothers from Port Royal monastery; Pascal and his sister Jacqueline were profoundly influenced by this and underwent religious conversion. Towards the end of his life, Pascal spent much of his time trying to reconcile faith and reason; his attempts are probably best exemplified by ‘Pascal’s Wager’, which appears in Pensées, a collection of philosophical considerations unfinished at the time of his death.
