The Philanthropic Mission of Comparative and International Education Bequeathed by Jullien: Continuing Capstone of the Field
Wolhuter, C. C.
Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, v47 n3 p303-316 2017
The aim of this lead article of this special issue of "Compare" is to assess the value of Jullien's vision for the field of comparative and international education today. The life, writings and ideas of Jullien are sketched, followed by a survey of the path of development of the field since the time of Jullien. In view of the exigencies of the early-twenty-first century, the article argues that Jullien's philanthropic vision holds up a beacon for a future trajectory of the field. This article also introduces the other contributions to this volume by using them to illustrate, to refine and to qualify this thesis.
