Searching for the Soul: Athena's Owl in the Comparative Education Cosmos
Silova, Iveta
European Education, v50 n2 p223-227 2018
Professor Kazamias has argued that comparative education has lost its "soul," by abandoning its historical and humanist episteme in the first half of the 20th century and turning to an ahistorical and nonhumanist social science today. This essay takes the readers on a journey across time and space in search of comparative education's "soul," briefly encountering a goddess in Greek mythology, a witch in medieval Europe, Alice in Wonderland, and Donna Haraway in the Chthulucene.
