Could someone please tell me the most detailed and direct definition of permeability and permittivity. I know that they are porportionalities of some sort but what else could they be viewed as? Why is εμ = 1/c^2 ?

"The Electromagnetic Interaction" which gives quite a good description. I highly reccomend it.

Permittivity permeability
This kind of dimensional analysis may not immediately clear everything up for you, but it can point you in the right direction.
