I wanted to share this video with the community here, especially for those participating in a recent fiery thread.
I think it's particularly good given today's current affairs at home and abroad.
I HIGHLY recommend you watch this video when you have 50 minutes to watch it in it's entirety.. really. It also contains a healthy helping of interesting, easily grasped, physics, history, and philosophy! The best part as usual is the last...and the way he ties in his musings on science and philosophy is quite good.
One almost needs to watch it twice over...
Probably J. Bronowski's most profound volume of the brilliant 'Ascent of Man' series.
