Umegaki briefly introduces the current as well as past research 
projects, and basic policy interest of the two instructors of the 
course. The introduction will be followed by a brief outline of 
what 
this course is meant, supplemented by a simple account of what

examination should turn up some concepts for both heuristic and 
analytical purposes.

“research” requires a certain degree of neutrality – commitment 
to 
context-free explanation – and equally acute sense of its 
consequences of (or responsibility for) what it produces in the 
actual context of life.
