Cowen, Robert – Comparative Education, 2018
One way to look at some of the scholars in English-language comparative education in the 1960s is to see them as being concerned with "methods." They themselves emphasised that they were re-thinking "method" in comparative education. Victories were won and courses were rewritten. That "historic" moment is taught (if…

Manzon, Maria – Comparative Education, 2018
Comparative education is two centuries old. Many mainstream historical narratives claim that the field began with the iconic opus of Marc-Antoine Jullien de Paris (1817). This article offers to re-theorise the histories of comparative education. It suggests casting a far-sighted and panoramic look at the field's origins. An underlying assumption…

Lenhart, Volker – Comparative Education, 2018
From its very beginnings, we can discern two methodological approaches to comparative education; one broadly historical-philosophical-idiographic and another broadly empirical-positivist-nomothetic. Friedrich August Hecht's 1795-1798 "De re scholastica Anglica cum Germanica comparata" ("English and German school education…
