109. Freeman Dyson Meets Wittgenstein (c. 1997)

Next door to me there was Wittgenstein, who lived on the same staircase, and he always cooked for himself too, and so I used to cook my supper with the smell of fish from Wittgenstein’s room next door.

Sam Schweber talks to Freeman Dyson about his life. (4 minutes.) The Wittgenstein bit starts at 1:20.

The whole interview is here. See also webofstories.com.
