Feynman Lectures

1981 Horizon Interview: Chapter 1 of The Pleasure Of Finding Things Out

1 - appreciating beauty, stories from the encyclopedia, naming versus knowing

2 - algebra for the practical man, persuading his father, moral questions about the bomb

3 - imagining nuclear future, not being responsible for what other people think, the Nobel Prize

4 - figuring out what the rules are, mathematical sense

5 - smashing hadrons, figuring consequences of a theory, creative irresponsibility, telling stories, different strokes for different folks

6 - science which is not science, science versus mysticism, just finding out about nature, unbeliever, living with doubt

Take the World from Another Point of View

Part 1 When you know the name of something, you still know nothing about it!

Part 2 Incredible complexity from the steady operation of simple rules

Part 3 we have a bias for prediction, and should study history, too

Part 4 how to make discoveries happen
