Mainly on the basis of physics, and through how to develop an understanding of the nature, students think about the subject in 21 century such as energy crisis and environmental issues with nature. 
Expected OutcomeThrough the evolution of natural science, it is possible to understand what is science:its utility and limitations. In addition, students may understand what is logical thinking in science.  
Class Objectives
/Class Outline
Although there was a scientist such as Archimedes in the Greek era, the development of only 300 years of science and technology since Galileo and Newton are remarkable. While learning what is the essence of the rapid progress, students think about symbiosis with nature.

lesson2 Nature and logic of the Greek era
lesson3 The world of numbers--chaos and set theory
lesson4 The world of mathematics--non-Euclidean geometry and incompleteness theorem
lesson5 Newtonian physics
lesson6 Heat and energy
lesson7 Oscillation and waves
lesson8 Early quantum theory
lesson9 Quantum theory
lesson10 Electronics and superconductor
lesson11 Synchrotron radiation
lesson12 Neutron scattering
lesson13 Nuclear power
lesson14 For a sustainable and reliable system
lesson15 metal physics and high temperature and high pressure science

Suggestions on
Preparation and
There is no need for preparation about a lecture, but it is recommended that you investigate more deeply on what you was interested in.
Also, not only vaguely hear the lecture, please wear the habit of taking notes. After the lesson, you can download materials of PowerPoint that I used in the lecture. 
Grading Method attitude toward the class including mini reports 40%, and two long reports 60% 
Practical Experience  
Summary of Practical Experience and Class Contents based on it  
Message As my research field is physics, my lecture may tend to focus on mathematical and physical points of vew. But I will minimize mathematical formula, and explain it basically for students of literature, as far as I can. 
Please fill in the class improvement questionnaire which is carried out on all classes.
Instructors will reflect on your feedback and utilize the information for improving their teaching.
