Feynman ‘Fun to Imagine’ 4: Magnets (and ‘Why?’ questions…)


Physicist Richard Feynman explains to a non-scientist just how difficult it is to answer certain questions in lay terms! A classic example of Feynman’s clarity of thought, powers of explanation and intellectual honesty – and his refusal to ‘cheat’ with misleading analogies… From the BBC TV series ‘Fun to Imagine'(1983).

    Richard Feynman is really interesting to listen to, though. I found out about him whilst researching the Manhattan Project last year and found him funny and honest (not to mention incredibly brainy).
