Description

For advanced students of Japanese, these lively lectures aid aural comprehension of scientific terminology, promote an understanding of chemistry as a human intellectual activity, and place some chemical discoveries in the context of world history. This book and its three DVDs include video lectures in Japanese by Tokyo University professor emeritus Yoshito Takeuchi and a text that comprises precise transcriptions of those lectures, accompanied by vocabulary aids. Takeuchi s engaging "kemi-sutorii," chemical stories, originated with a request from the Japanese television network NHK to enliven its weekly broadcast of high school chemistry lectures."
