Challenges to Comparative Education: Between Retrospect and Expectation.
Mitter, Wolfgang
International Review of Education/Internationale Zeitschrift fuer Erziehungswissenschaft/Revue Internationale de l'Education, v43 n5-6 p401-12 1999
Identifies five "paradigms" which have been dominant in comparative education from the 1950s to the 1990s. The current paradigm addresses the interrelation between universalism and cultural pluralism. Comparative education should find a fruitful balance between world-system theory and the theories postulating that cultural diversity will be a permanent formation of human history. Contains 10 references. (AMA)
