The Meaning Of It All
"Sinopsis" puede pertenecer a otra edición de este libro.
The Meaning of It All: Thoughts of a Citizen Scientist collects three previously unpublished lectures by Richard Feynman, probably the greatest popularizer of physics in this century. There's plenty of scientific illumination here for the general reader, and more remarkably, some fantastic ruminations on the relationships between science, religion, politics and everyday life. Feynman is especially sensitive to the relationships between scientific scepticism, faithful doubt and ideological flexibility. These lectures have been transcribed verbatim, so they sometimes ramble and repeat themselves. But this slim volume has wisdom and wit on every page: it's a truly erudite and edifying meditation on Dostoevsky's observation that "There lies more faith in honest doubt, believe me, than in half the creeds." -- Michael Joseph GrossAbout the Author:
'He is everything you want and expect a scientist to be: charming, sceptical, funny, blindingly intelligent . confirms one's suspicion that Feynman was probably the coolest scientist who ever lived' Guardian
One of the world's greatest theoretical physicists and a Nobel laureate, Richard Feynman was also a man who fell, often jumped, into adventure. An artist, safe-cracker, practical joker and storyteller, his life was a series of combustible combinations made possible by his unique mixture of high intelligence, unquenchable curiosity and eternal scepticism.
