Searching for the soul

Athena’s owl in the comparative education cosmos

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Professor Kazamias has argued that comparative education has lost its “soul,” by abandoning its historical and humanist episteme in the first half of the 20th century and turning to an ahistorical and nonhumanist social science today. This essay takes the readers on a journey across time and space in search of comparative education’s “soul,” briefly encountering a goddess in Greek mythology, a witch in medieval Europe, Alice in Wonderland, and Donna Haraway in the Chthulucene.
