For learners of technical Japanese, this title offers an innovative approach to the language of chemistry.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 chemical discoveries in the context of world history. This book with CD-ROM includes video lectures in Japanese by Tokyo University professor emeritus Takeuchi Yoshito and precise transcriptions of those lectures, accompanied by vocabulary aids. Takeuchi engages his audience with kemisutoorii, "chemical stories" that he created for broadcasts of thirty-minute programs for high school chemistry classes on the Japanese network NHK.
