Lecture Demonstrations

"Talking of education 'People have now-a-days got a strange opinion that everything should be taught by lectures. Now, I cannot see that lectures can do so much good as reading the books from which the lectures are taken. I know nothing that can best be taught by lectures, except where experiments are to be shewn."
-Samuel Johnson (from "The Life of Dr. Johnson" by James Boswell: 1766).
