Lecture Details :
(January 10, 2011) Leonard Susskind gives a lecture on the string theory and particle physics. In this lecture, he begins by describing the theory of reductionism and then goes on to tell why string theory and other modern theories spell the end of reductionism.
In the last of course of this series, Leonard Susskind continues his exploration of string theory that attempts to reconcile quantum mechanics and general relativity. In particular, the course focuses on string theory with regard to important issues in contemporary physics.
This course was originally presented in Stanford's Continuing Studies program. Leonard Susskind is the Felix Bloch Professor of Physics at Stanford University.

Course Description :
In particular, the course focuses on string theory with
regard to important issues in contemporary physics.
Topics include: 1) the impact of string theory on
the pursuit of black holes; 2) the string theory landscape
and the implications for cosmology; and 3) the
Holographic Principle and its applications.
