The Pleasure of Finding Things Out. The Best Short Works of Richard P. Feynman by Richard P. Feynman. Edited by Jeffry Robbins. Foreword by Freeman. The Pleasure of Finding. Things Out. Tbis is the edited transcript of an intewiew with Feynman made for the BBC television program Horizon in , shown in. Editorial Reviews. cittadelmonte.info Review. Why do we do science? Beyond altruistic and self-aggrandizing motivations, many of our best scientists work long .
Richard Feynman was a scientific genius with - in his words - a "limited intelligence". This dichotomy is just one of the characteristics that made him a fascinating subject. The Pleasure of Finding Things Out exposes us to many more of these intriguing attributes by featuring an extensive conversation with the acclaimed Nobel Prize winner. During the course of the interview, which was conducted in , Feynman uses the undeniable power of the personal to convey otherwise challenging scientific theories. His colorful and lucid stories make abstract concepts tangible, and his warm presence is sure to inspire interest and awe from even the most reluctant student of science. His insights are profound, but his delivery is anything but dry and ostentatious. Heralded as one of the greatest physicists of all time, his curiosity was nurtured by his military father, who encouraged him to explore and comprehend the world around him in a manner that transcended textbooks and grade school teachings.
After having established himself as an undeniable talent in the world of physics, his expertise was called upon to assist in the development of the atom bomb during World War II. His essential involvement in the Manhattan Project, and the catastrophic loss of life it eventually wrought, left him severely tormented.
His self-doubt soon rectified itself in the form of historic research and theory development, influential teaching assignments, and from achieving the top prize in his field - the Nobel Prize in physics.
Filmed just seven short years prior to his untimely death, The Pleasure of Finding Things Out is a highly engrossing tribute to a towering intellect, and a valuable reminder of how the complex beauty and potential consequences of science impact us all. Brilliant documentary worth watching if only for how to be a better father. I was weak at physics but watched this out of fascination with great minds that have helped shaped the world and timed in which we live and have all benefited from the hard work of such exceptional minds in one way or another.
Particularly touching for me was to see the joy with which he recalled how he would explain the hidden laws of physics to his son by making a story interesting to hear. This is a divine gift many can learn from if one is to enjoy parenthood more and have a greater impact on ones children and others.
I think he avoided the religious questions for obvious reasons and didn't want to upset anyone. Think about the way he thinks That was great. His way of questioning whether something is true should the standard for all "facts". Interesting doc.
A brilliant mind no doubt. But besides all this praise I cannot get over the fact that he helped to create the atomic bomb. He was celebrating after it went off and hundreds of thousands were killed, and many more more lives for many generations destroyed. He calls himself irrisponsible for good reason.
And at the end he clearly shy's away from the mystical and unexplainable side of life or life questions and sticks to science of the explainable, so clearly there will be part of the equasion missing at the end.
And he did admit to suffering with depression later though what drew him into the science. I don't think anyone would deny that it worked, providing a deterrent which has worked for a very long time.
I teach Maths and Physics to secondary and high school students. Anytime I teach a subject that might include Feynman's explanations, I make my students watch excerpts from his interviews. I haven't seen any student who wasn't impressed by him and who didn't renew their interest in science. I agree particularly with him when he said that he hated honors.
What he calls honor I call vanity. People do things nowadays or have ever been doing things to show off, and not necessarily because they wanted to make some progress useful and important to the world.
Seemed to be a really simple and humble man. Someone devoted to science and to life, without being focused on image, fame and other common things that we see in the world. In short, he teaches to look for knowledge in the depths of things and do it seriously, not just to be recognized by society. Feynman is cool, so he surely was joking with his definition of classical magnetostatics: That is impossible and unphysical. Ads are so annoying, what site is this hosted on so I know to never visit it?
Documentary is awesome though.
The Pleasure of Finding Things Out : The Best Short Works of Richard P. Feynman
Im glad he has shown recognition for people were dying while they were playing drums and partying and that after the war turned his back on that kinda research. Great man could listen to him talk and talk very interesting guy. Well, I started the video just out of curiosity, to see for the first time how Richard Feynman actually was and talked..
And I only realized I didn't stop when it finished. This surprisingly made me feel happy and peaceful. How nice to "discuss" science with a great mind and get away from everything for an hour! Just watched this again on a dreary Saturday afternoon for the umpteenth time.
Whenever anyone asks me if I "could have a conversation with anyone, living or dead", my go-to is to have Richard Feynman come back and explain the Universal Theory to my dumb ass. I think Errol Morris does this, with a bit of intervention or intrusion, but mostly the same way. To allow the subject of the film to present the self as it is, with little interference, or none as this case is, is terrific. Certainly there is editing and there were questions asked, but the final narrative, the self exposure, is a kind of empathy, rather than some dictum.

Tres bien. As it were. He was a POET. Nobody thinks of Physicist as artist, only musicians or painters, but what else can be more creative than to elaborate a different view of reality or to discover an universal law that changes our technology? No sportsman, no politician, no economist, no doctor helped to advance humanity at all, they just go to congresses to learn from physicist and creative investigators new tecniques to apply them without even knowing how it works.
You think an computer technitian knows how to really build from scratch a computer, applying all the quantum mecanics involved?
Richard Feynman: The Pleasure of Finding Things Out
No way. This makes me sad for the state of science today. Feynman said it used to be the case that the university hires you so it's their risk if you fail. You're just figuring stuff out. Now it's the scientists' risk.
It's now on scientists to do all the jobs: I think it's so neat how he is able to pull me into his stories in such a way that my mind floats off into the world he is describing. Then every once in a while I snap back to my present reality thinking these kind of thoughts until once again he whisks me away on another little journey.
He has purpose, to figure out what is going on in this crazy world with his extraordinary mind. We all have the choice to make our own purpose of this life which is our purpose. I believe anyway. Good Doc!!! If only we all had the razor sharp mind and incredibly creative nature that doctor Feynman had. Ah to live but to dream Not to downplay Feynman, but it's much more achievable than we think. He's exceptional in part because most other people are shackled down by bad parents, bad schools, violence around them, social reinforcement of all the negative things, etc.
We can and have, and learned a great deal about learning and mechanisms of cognition by apply science towards that. Hitting doesn't work. Engage and develop relationships with kids. Touching, caressing babies creates neural pathways. Teach them stuff. Enjoy and be curious and explore things together. Explicitly explain empiricism.
Warn them about charlatans, inoculate their minds by teaching them what is already available to us: An excellent interview with the late Richard Feynman in which is glimpsed his unique approach to teaching and learning along with a little of his personal philosophies.
This is the kind of character that I could listen to all day.
