This book compiles the experiences of Prof. Okano while teaching physics at ICU, a liberal arts school in Tokyo, Japan. It presents his unique views on teaching science to students at a liberal arts university, and how this compares to other approaches adopted in Japan. The book also presents example lectures from a basic physics course presented by him and as understood by the students, providing a unique perspective on whether the goal of the course is transferred to their benefit. It introduces a unique and inductive definition of education obtained by Prof. Okano over the many years of rich experiences of learning, teaching, and doing research in Japan and in many other countries.
