The Character of Physical Law

The Character of Physical Law consists of seven lectures given by physicist Richard Feynman, concerning the nature of the laws of physics. The lectures were delivered by Richard Feynman in 1964 at Cornell University as part of the Messenger Lectures series, and recorded for television by the BBC. In the lectures Richard Feynman offers an overview of selected physical laws and gathers their common features into one broad principle of invariance. Their text was published by the BBC in 1965 in a book by the same name - The Character of Physical Law.
