Introduction - Deepstash


The Feynman Technique is a method of learning that maximizes your potential and helps you to develop a deep understanding.

Richard Feynman was a Nobel prize-winning physicist. He was a front-runner in quantum mechanics and particle physics. His real superpower, however, was his ability to explain complicated subjects to others in simple terms.

Feynman understood the difference between understanding something and knowing the name of something. He was never content with just knowing the name of something. He wanted to understand it at a deeper level.
