Kivinen, Osmo; Rinne, Risto
Interchange, v29 n2 p121-36 Apr 1998
Examines methodological presuppositions underlying comparative research into higher education, criticizing external approaches to comparing nationally differentiated higher education systems, arguing for a power-source analysis of social dynamics, and stressing the importance of a historical approach. A modified general model of social dynamics that provides better insight into the methodologically critical areas of comparative educational research is offered. (SM)
