The license needs some clarity.
If it is downloaded, it is likely saved to a permanent storage, and maaaybe some process will eventually delete it. In any case this should not be the territory for law. Why don't they want it anyway? From the landing page: They don't know what the word "download" means. This statement is nonsense. It generally does not include temporary transfer of small parts of the document for immediate reading, except when the focus of the discussion is about the underlying mechanics of the transfer.
This supposed duality is nonsense. A change of cache settings in your browser amounts to the same result.
There's no such thing as a "temporary transfer", and I think we should not entertain the notion. AUmrysh on Aug 25, I don't see how it's any different from time-shifting with VHS. In this case, you're just using a longer-term "temporary" format epub, mobi, pdf which allows you to peruse the website later.
Too late. One has already wgot the entire thing. I don't know if you can actually take that right away however. I'm not aware of any precedent for this situation. Lets hope that talented soul doesn't end up like Aaron Swartz. Those scripts have since been removed, in response to the suggestion that their continued availability might lead to a permanent discontinuation of HTML access.
Please note that this is only a small subset of his lectures.
They are the "Six Easy Pieces". The pdf is a fairly accurate copy of the print books which I own but which are heavy things to lug about.
What one finds 'classical' is highly relative: Socrates' ideas, or rather Plato's representations thereof, belong to a cultural context radically different from our own and have absolutely no relevance. Greece was undergoing a transition from orality to literacy at the time. It was also in the early stages of actual educational institutions. What the distribution of a few manuscripts in that context meant relates to nothing in our modern world.
Not to be a jerk about it, but the misuse of history is characteristic of very pernicious rhetoric. Wow chalk one up on "completely missing the point. Retric on Aug 24, Books are clearly worse in virtually every context than one on one dialog with the author. The advantage of contact with people separated in space or time seem less meaningful at the time. But, venerating books over one on one contact is a huge mistake. This is not the case with fiction or poetry, where what is communicated is often precisely what cannot be communicated socially or even explicitly.
The experiences of both writing and reading are often in a different realm altogether than those of speaking and listening face to face -- one is not a watered down version of the other. They have different qualities. And even in the case of scientific and mathematical exposition, where your statement is more often true, there are many exceptions.
For example, I think of professors I've had who could write lucidly but were poor teachers, both in the classroom and in office hours. Either their social skills stood in the way of their communication, or their verbal skills were not as good as their written ones. They needed time and solitude to express their thoughts clearly.
People can recite books just fine, let alone poetry. Granted, it's something of a lost skill, but one on one interactions are not limited to dialogs even if they may enhance exposition. So, you gain absolutely nothing by writing the spoken word down as a skilled orator can speak with a nuteral tone when desired but the written word can't add inflection. Sometimes deliberate ambiguity is part of the art.
Also, on a more practical level, books are better at random access. This is what Feynman himself wrote in the preface to the books under discussion. To be sure, I too prefer a book. But there are plenty of times I would love the option to reference a book at an inconvenient time like when I'm at work 50 miles away.
Having a low fidelity option is preferable over none at all in these cases. Someday we'll have an honest-to-god book with e-ink, which will reconfigure itself to whatever we want to read and get the best of both worlds.
PopSci promised me this more than a decade ago and I'm bitter it hasn't happened yet! Agree with this. Also if I get into a book, I always end up downloading the thing as I don't want any electronic distractions taking away from it.
Until it goes flat, you drop it or the damn thing decides you're not allowed to read the book any more or the ebook is a poorly OCR'ed copy with mistakes in it Plus I can't give my books to other people to read when I'm done.
I had a Kobo and a Kindle and they were horrid. I understand but no thanks. These books show more than anything else why Feynman is so revered among physicists as a teacher. An introductory course in physics, simple yet demanding, and shot through with Feynman's unique approach and personality.
Feynman actually found that the lectures kind of flopped as a semesters courses. It was too intense, IIRC. That's correct.
Feynmann loved his technical crash courses and these lectures show that he has a mastery of distilling out all of the details and leaving none of the chaff.
I have been always intrigued and fascinated by Physics and unfortunately did not able to pursue it as my career but having free access to Feynman's lectures would definitely ignite passion in me and lot of others who are interested in subject.
Just chapter 1 contains answers to many questions that I've had on the back of my mind.. Why does water ice expand when it melts? If water ice is a crystalline structure, how can it vary in temperature e. A very good read. Perhaps you misspoke or I'm not understanding correctly what you mean but from the book: When the organization breaks down, these holes can be occupied by molecules.
Most simple substances, with the exception of water and type metal, expand upon melting, because the atoms are closely packed in the solid crystal and upon melting need more room to jiggle around, but an open structure collapses, as in the case of water.
I misspoke, I meant shrinks.. Project Tuva has a great series of lectures Feynman gave around that time http: Silverlight only. How does this compare to Susskind's "The Theoretical Minimum"? DennisP on Aug 24, Susskind's is much shorter and goes into very little detail. It's really intended to give you a foundation for learning physics, while Feynmann's is meant to teach you lots of physics.
The Feynman lectures certainly will teach you a lot, but I think it would be a fairly trying textbook for learning a lot of the material for the first time. Among other things, a very serious deficiency for self-education is a complete lack of problems to work which just reflects that these really were lectures. What would you recommend for self-education? That's a tough question. One of the most appealing things about the Feynman lectures is the breadth and how self-contained it is.
I don't think there are really good analogues for that. The closest thing I can think of is one of the monster first-year physics tomes like Halliday and Resnick. That will teach you much of the basics large chunks of Vol. It is also probably comparably or more expensive. Going much further than that gets tricky, because you will usually need more development in math in concert with the physics. The omnibus "engineering mathematics" type books will cover a lot of it but I don't really like them.
For more detailed looks at electromagnetism and quantum mechanics, I and many others I know really liked David Griffiths's textbooks. The Feynman lectures make an excellent supplement to these for the different perspective and interesting physical insights. Does that apply to Susskind's video lectures as well? Don't forget the audio is out there too! Shizka on Aug 24, Is it actually possible to learn this through audio?
With equations and so forth I would imagine it being rather hard. Do you have any experience with it? Yes I have the audio. No, it is no substitute for the book.
The audio is of the lectures. The books are based on the lectures.
