International Education Comparison: An Intellectual Tradition and Its Contemporary Considerations
Li, Yu-Chih
Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, v38 n6 p955-963 2017
What is the nature of comparative and international education as a discipline? What are the relationships and connections between comparison and internationalization? Such questions have long been discussed in comparative education and have provoked much debate."Comparative and International Education: An Introduction to Theory, Method, and Practice" by Phillips and Schweisfurth (2014) provides answers to both questions. This second edition is discussed in relation to the development of comparison as a discipline and the increasing international commensurability occurring through such development. The author argues that among other things, the book provides help when when pondering the two most important questions for the field. Also discussed are possibilities for rethinking sameness and difference in intercultural comparison today, drawing from the work of the French philosopher, François Jullien.
