Summary
Richard Feynman (1918-1988) was an outstanding scientist, Nobel laureate, and legendary teacher. A graduate of M.I.T. with a doctorate from Princeton University, Dr. Feynman soon acquired a reputation as a theoretical physicist and sought-after lecturer in leading universities. During World War II he worked on the development of the atomic bomb and became head of the theoretical division at Los Alamos. In this program, he talks about his lifelong obsession with finding out how the world works-a passion for knowledge and understanding that began on childhood walks with his father. He was a remarkable man who speaks about science and scientists with a rare degree of honesty, insight, humor, and irreverence
