費曼:科學看見美麗

我想向大家分享科學,因為我覺得科學很有趣。

費曼 (Richard Feynman, 1918 – 1988) 也覺得科學很有趣。有一次,他的一個朋友對他說,科學拿走了事物之美,令事物變得枯燥。費曼回答說:

以下是費曼這段說話的錄音:

I have a friend who’s an artist and has sometimes taken a view which I don’t agree with very well.

inspiring blog post title

I screenshotted this quote from the Coursera course “Learning How to Learn”. I guess it resonated with me at the time. I had originally just posted this quote as is but decided to google a pic of this Richard Feynman gent and add the text. 16 more words
