Richard Feynman above shows the benefits of asking "why?" in science.
The converse is the perverse "deconstruction" of post-modernism as practiced in most universities today. As illustrated by Norm Macdonald's "professor of logic" joke.
Sadly today we seem to have too few Richard Feynman types and too many wannabe "professor of logic" types.
Feynman was a remarkable teacher. and everything he said did in fact address the fundamental question of "why?" An interesting man in many ways.ReplyDelete
I find Feynman to be a fascinating man. Truly and American Einstein.ReplyDelete
