Reconstructing Comparative Education
This book has investigated the problem of what comparative education is and how it came to be constructed as a field. Adopting a philosophical and sociological approach, the study sought to understand the institutional and intellectual shaping of academic comparative education by epistemological, as well as structural, agency-oriented and discursive forces. This section recapitulates the essential arguments and proposes a theorisation of the relationship between the institutional and intellectual re-shaping of comparative education in terms of a ‘quasi-discursive’ construction of the field.
