Welcome to Kyoto-U OCW.
Welcome to KYOTO-U's OpenCourseWare:
The Three Principles of Kyoto University
Advance the scholarship of mankind and contribute to the light of the earth. Scholarship is the antithesis of physical force. Each of the modern sciences is tied to scholarship.
Cultivating words both foreign and familiar, education is to be enjoyed together. Language is the key to the integration of knowledge. Education based on superior language does not stop at mere knowledge transfer.
Brilliance is not prideful; a university of both intelligence and fellowship. Among many measures of scholarship and morality, Those of our university fall broadly within these three.
