Philosophy, as it comes from Plato and Aristotle, is the love of wisdom. The future has preserved very little of this origin. Modernity, in particular, has defined the original form of the abandonment of the original erotica, assimilating philosophy to science within the project of reducing being to thought. Yet, in the heart of abandonment, in the heart of modernity, Pascal rekindles the original flame. On the basis of this basic thesis, the essay establishes a comparison between Plato, Aristotle and Pascal which allows us to appreciate a surprising continuity in the discontinuity between the ancient and the modern.
