Richard Feynman – The Character of Physical Law (audio lectures)

I’ve been listening to this lecture series on physics by Richard Feynman lately. The audio quality on the videos is a bit low, so I decided to clean it up a bit and make the entire lecture series available in easy podcast-able audio only form. There are a few diagrams that you will be missing from the videos, but most of the points are easy to understand even without the visual. If you have a long commute or enjoy learning about physics, perhaps you will enjoy them as much as I have:

(Note: there are also some somewhat higher quality videos with decent audio available here)

Part 1: The Law of Gravitation

Part 2: The Relation of Mathematics to Physics

Part 3: The Great Conservation Principles

Part 4: Symmetry in Physical Law

Part 5: The Distinction of Past and Future

Part 6: Probability and Uncertainty

Part 7: Seeking New Laws

If you enjoy these, you can also find the complete text of The Feynman Lectures on Physics, which is essentially an expanded version of the above, publicly available here:
