Re: Feynman and I (08/05/18 21:01:04)
Feynman was a great physicist. He knew preciously little of other sciences than his own, and little if no biology. So he is excused.
You do not need to know about elements to have use of the knowledge of microbiology. For the complexity of biological molecules you need not to know about elements. For needing to know about molybdenium or cobalt or vanadium you need to be part of a scientifically advanced culture. Fungi or yeasts or bacteria: If they had known about it, Greek philosophyt would (I think) have been different and maybe useful.
