授業の概要
/Course outline
This course introduces students to philosophy through problems or “puzzles” discussed in the history of the western philosophy. Those problems are typically concerned with the nature of the world, god, mind, and morality: Where did the universe come from? Can we know other people’s minds? Can machines think? What is it to be morally good and bad? What is it to know something? Each class presents one of those philosophical puzzles and we will think through about them. In so doing we will learn the philosophical and analytical way of thinking, which could enable us to think more clearly and critically when we face complicated problems even in the fields other than philosophy.
授業の目的と到達目標
/Objectives and attainment
goals
After finishing this course students should be: (a) Able to describe philosophical problems discussed in class, and (b) Able to examine those problems and present their position on them by making a clear argument.

授業の概要
/Course outline
私たちが日常生活で特に意識することなく使っている自然言語は、意味を音の連なりに暗号化する大変複雑なシステムです。この授業は、自然言語を経験的自然現象と捉えて研究する、言語の科学への入門です。授業では、単に講義を聴くだけでなく多くの演習問題に取り組むことで基本的な知識と考え方を身につけて欲しいと思います。
Natural language, which we use to communicate in everyday life, is a complex system that encodes meanings in sequences of sounds. This course is an introduction to the science of natural language, i.e. the study of natural language as an empirical, natural phenomenon. In this course, students are expected to not only listen to the lecture but also try and solve numerous exercises to learn basic knowledge of linguistics and how to do linguistics.
授業の目的と到達目標
/Objectives and attainment
goals
言語学の基本を学び、ふだん話している「言葉」を客観的に分析できる視点を身につける。また、言語データを分析することを通して、科学的・論理的な考え方を身につける。
By completing this course, students should acquire the basics of linguistics and an objective viewpoint from which to analyze natural language. Through the practice of analyzing linguistic data, students should also develop their skills in scientific and logical thinking.

*Lecture on ancient Chinese literature and Chinese characters. Also explain about ancient Chinese poetry and story behind the scenes.
 黄河と長江という二大河を中心に育まれた中華文明には、それに相応しい悠久の歴史、思想があり、膨大な文学、文化があります。それらは、いずれの時代をいかように切り取っても、圧倒的な輝き・深さをもって我々に迫ってきます。それは、日本語を含む日本文化の源流、東洋文化の源流です。
 漢字・漢文学は、「八宗兼学でなければ一分科をも修め得ない」(すべてのジャンルに習熟していなければひとつも習得できない)といわれ、中学高等学校時代のイメージとは相違し、実学虚学の文理全分野がその対象となる深遠無辺な学問です。例えば、本来の漢文学のなかには医薬学や動植物学、天文学や物理学といった理系分野さえも含まれるのです。李白や杜甫、『論語』や『三国志』は、漢文学のほんの一部分なのです。
 もちろん短期間の講義の中では、理系分野の漢文学に触れる機会はありませんが、諸文化の源流といえる「巫祝」と呼ばれるシャーマン(古代の呪術者)への理解と、それを伝えてきた媒体である「漢字」、そしてそれが思想や文学として花開いた「故事成語」や「漢詩」の世界について具体例を挙げながら学びたいと思います。
授業の目的と到達目標

①漢文学や日本文学の基礎ともいえる「漢字」の特質について理解する。

理系の学生であっても文学的・文化的・芸術的発想はたいへんに重要です。例えば、日本人初のノーベル物理学賞を受賞した湯川秀樹や日本のロケット開発・宇宙開発の父と呼ばれる糸川英夫も、ともに漢文や芸術を愛しました。特に湯川は、その量子力学の着想において、『老子』『荘子』など漢文学の影響を大いに受けたと自身でもたびたび言及しています。この講義からは、単なる教養的知識だけではなく、東洋的な発想や物の見方を学んでください。

成績評価の方法・基準
/Grading method/criteria
Most of the coursework involves lab exercises emphasizing creative applications of digital contents creation tools, highlighting design and invention as much as discovery. Weekly "checkpoint" exercises verify specific skill sets--- including drawing and painting, color models and specification, digital compositing (layers, overlays, texture mapping), stereography (autostereograms, anaglyphics, chromastereoscopy, including 3D drawing), audio editing SFX (sound effects), dialog generated with TTS (text-to-speech) synthesis tools, and DTM for BGM (desk-top music composition for background music). There are also creative studio exercises, occasional quizzes, and exams. The course's annual chromastereoptic art contest is juried, and winning entries are exhibited in a special display in the University library. Student-composed montages, highlighting originally created art, are presented to the entire class in special review sessions.

/Course outline
The gender and sexuality studies use social-scientific approaches to matters related to the sexes such as biological sexes, psychosexuality and sociosexuality, sexual desires, and sexual behaviors.

In the introduction, students will learn the overall territory of the gender and sexuality studies. Afterwards, students will learn three main themes; 1) modern family and working females, 2) matters related to gender and sexuality, and 3) modern history of homosexuality in Japan.

1) Modern family and working females: Students will learn about sex-role “male should work outside, female should do housework and take care of children at home” and modern family which emphasizes an interest to children and family ties at household.
Moreover students will have an opportunity to think about how the norm surrounding a modern family is interrupting working female. On the other hand, students will learn the circumstances of the gender norm which shapes the way of life for males as well as that for females.

2) Matters related to gender and sexuality: Based on autonomy of sex, students will learn that everybody has the inherent right of his/her own sexuality which should not be affected by others regardless of his/her gender. However, in the reality, there is the gender asymmetry. Students will learn that sexuality of females is affected by males.
In order to establish tight relationship as a member of the society without any gender concerns, understanding about the autonomy of sex is inevitable.

3) Modern history of homosexuality in Japan: Homosexuality will be featured amongst sexual minorities. A method based on historical sociology will be employed.
Recently, same-sex marriage and same-sex partnership system have been discussed in Japan. Students will learn that social problems will not be solved only by these factors and gender equality is necessary for it.

Since gender and sexuality are linked each other, they will be taught one by one at the class carefully.
授業の目的と到達目標
/Objectives and attainment
goals
1) By learning the fundamental knowledge about modern family and employment of female, students will be able to think about what they can do for creating society that anyone can spend their lives in their own ways regardless sexual differences.

2) Knowing about the reality of sexual damages to females caused by gender asymmetry, students will be able to explain why autonomy of sex is essential.

3) Learning about homosexuality in Japanese modern history, students will be able to explain why having establishment of same-sex marriage and same-sex partnership system is insufficient as support for sexual minorities.

*The objective of this course is to acquaint students with conceptual framework and perspectives to understand contemporary Asia in the context of International Relations.
本講義の目的は、転換期を迎えている今日の世界と日本を理解するための分析視角と考察枠組みを学ぶことにある。この場合、2011年3月11日の東日本大震災以後の日本を取り巻く国内・国際情勢に焦点を当てつつ、授業を行なう。「国際関係論」は理系学生にとっては聞きなれない学問分野であるが、政治、経済、外交、安全保障の問題についての基礎的知識のない学生にも配慮しつつ、授業を展開する予定である。授業は原則的に講義中心で行うが、リサーチ実習、グループ討論、個人発表なども積極的に取り入れていきたい。また、学生の学習意欲を高めるため、新聞やニュースで注目を集めている時事問題の解説にも十分な時間を取りたいと考えている。

キーワード:「東日本大震災・福島第一原発事故」、「東アジアのダイナミズム」、「日本のICT戦略」、「BOPビジネス」、「官民連携」、「クール・ジャパン」、「ダークツーリズム」、「今、ここにいる自分」
