Physics
Richard Feynman's Messenger Lectures, a seven-part lecture series delivered at Cornell University, will form the framework for our discussions. The lectures have been published and are available on the web. 
Richard's presentation will use this series which will focus on what physical theory is all about. Discussions will be presented from a philosophical perspective, but quantitative thinking will be essential. The course is designed to provide a perspective to understand the overall goals of physics research, and how physicists think.

We will be using Character of Physical Law by Richard Feynman
