Lecture 6: Cosmic Structure Formation, From Inflation to Galaxies
Posted in M.I.T.
This lecture provides an indepth examination of the formation of the universe. It is quite extensive in its coverage of the expansion of the cosmos and the illusive dark matter and dark energy.
Lecture 5: The Universe and Three Examples
Posted in M.I.T.
Alan Guth discusses the overall history and structure of the Universe, covering topics from big bang scenarios to the background radiation of the cosmos.
Lecture 4: X-Ray Binaries and the Search for Black Holes
Posted in M.I.T.
In this MIT lecture, Jeffrey McClintock unveils stellar mass black holes. He extensively covers phenomenon such as schwarzschind black holes, the pulsing revolutions of X-ray binaries, and the general importance of black holes to physics.
Lecture 3: Einstein's Field Equations
Posted in M.I.T.
In this lecture Edmund Bertschinger tackles Einstein's Field Equations, revealing the history of our understanding of curved spacetime and the mathematical and physical implications of this discovery.
Lecture 2: The Universe - Questions You Were Afraid to Ask
Posted in M.I.T.
This free lecture takes on a frequently-asked-questions type approach to introduce concepts as varied as the proliferation of black holes in the cosmos to the whereabouts of the center of the universe.
Lecture 1: 	Introduction to Black Holes and Astrophysics
Posted in M.I.T.
This introductory lecture provides an overview of the course and introduces students to the general principals behind the structure of the universe and spacetime.
Lecture 4: From Orson Welles To The Dead
Posted in M.I.T.
This, final, lecture of the Philosophy of Film class overviews the works of Orson Welles, particularly The Magnificent Ambersons. It also looks at the 1980s flick The Dead.
Lecture 3: Beauty & The Beast To William James
Posted in M.I.T.
This third lecture of Philosophy of Film breaks down the many layers (production and story wise) of Beauty and the Beast and Citizen Kane. It also discusses William James, a distinguished psychologist and philosopher.
Lecture 2: Realism & Formalism
Posted in M.I.T.
This lecture shows the importance and relevance of studying film. It presents mathematics as a form of abstract art, breaks down the style and method of realism and formalism, outlines the differences and similarities between film and photography.
Lecture 1: Introduction To Philosophy of Film
Posted in M.I.T.
In this first session Prof. Irving Singer goes over the syllabus and course requirements, before skimming over the basics of philosophy and film, Jean Cocteau, film as a cultural communication device, and recommended readings.
