In this article, the writer analyzes three given passages from Montaigne, Descartes and Pascal discussing humanities. The writer argues that the common theme between all of them is the nature of individual identity and its relationship with the larger cosmos.

From the Paper:

"As will be seen, whether with Montaigne's speculations upon the defining forces of our nature or with Descartes upon how this individual identity can be used to justify the existence of God, while there exist clear differences between the views of these three French thinkers, they are all focused upon the fundamental questions of what it means to be an individual person in the post-medieval intellectual universe."
