My Experiences of Being a Scientist by Nobel Laureate Professor Lee Yuan Tseh, Nobel Prize in Chemistry, 1986, Honorary Fellow, Akademi Sains Malaysia. In this lecture a story of how a young man who grew up in Taiwan overcame the gap between ideals and reality along his path of school education and learning to be a scientist.

Professor Lee Yuan Tseh is a Distinguished Research Fellow at the Institute of Atomic and Molecular Sciences and was the first Taiwanese Nobel Laureate, who, along with Prof. Dudley R. Herschbach and Prof. John C. Polanyi won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1986 for their contributions to the dynamics of chemical elementary processes.

Prof. Lee’s intellectual interests have extended well beyond the field of chemistry and he is passionate about the direction and responsibilities of higher education, the future of mankind, global warming, the futility of war, the environment as well as the idea of the world as a global village.
