The lecture establishes a connection between Kant's argument for belief in God and Pascal's famous wager. Although the two may seem quite different at first glance, on closer examination they have a surprising philosophical relationship. In particular, they both boil down to the conviction that one will be rewarded in the afterlife if one lives "pleasing to God".
