Feynman, constructive uncertainty

Tracing a retweet from Speaking of Faith, I ran across an expanded post that featured Richard Feynman on the late physicist's approach to uncertainty. For those of you who might not be familiar with him, Feynman, among many contributions to science, added depth to our understanding of quantum mechanics, a proposition that called into question once-unassailable ideas like causality.

With that in mind, you can imagine how interested someone who has posted frequently on belief, uncertainty and truths we do not know might be to hear Feynman express his views.

From probability to game and string theory, constructive uncertainty is - feel free to disagree - the great theme of our time. That's my view. And though Feynman touches on religious themes, one not need go there to appreciate how surprising the knowing enterprise has turned out to be.

In uncertainty, progress. Part two is at the bottom of this page.
