Richard Feynman Realizes the Usefulness of Names

January 2, 2010

In this video interview (and in many other anecdotes), Nobel laureate Richard Feynman’s point is in order to truly understand various phenomena, you must spend the hard time seeking to understand underlying basic laws. It’s kind of a cute clip where he admits names are  important for one use…Follow this link to go to YouTube to start the video where I meant it to start below.

If you continue to listen, he discusses why he was so focused on understanding quarks rather than crazy unsolvable problems and how he had success in discovering break-through principles through the exercise of looking at things from a wild perspective. Enjoy!
