LIMONGI, Maria Isabel. Pascal e a ordem da concupiscência. Kriterion [online]. 2006, vol.47, n.114, pp.321-334. ISSN 0100-512X. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-512X2006000200008.
Pascal conceives the civil order as an order of conscupiscence, that is, an order produced and regulated by concupiscence. We shall present the novelty of this idea vis-a-vis the tradition of political thought and St. Agustine, and point out what seems to be its condition of possibility, that is, the way Pascal conceived the fallen will and, more properly, the concupiscence of flesh, to which refers the civil order.
Keywords : Pascal; Order of Concupiscence; Will.
