Messages to Prospective Students/受講生へのメッセージ
Do you know the motto printed in T-shirt of a used book store in Berkeley, California, "Moe's" that I found ? - "Reading is Sexy." It's Great that I think. I will add in our class, "Understanding Research Ethics is also agapic [in Greek sence]Sexy, Philo-Sophy." This is my motto of objectivity of this class.
