Richard Feynman on why science adds beauty in the Universe: it does not subtract
‘It only adds. I don’t understand how it subtracts.’
Throughout the 20th century, the prominent US theoretical physicist Richard Feynman gained a reputation as an eloquent and accessible public spokesperson for science and enquiry. This short film, with audio excerpted from a 1981 BBC documentary on Feynman titled The Pleasure of Finding Things Out, features Feynman explaining why he believes beauty reveals itself through science, investigation and uncertainty.
