“Asia as method” and educational research

Research output: Contribution to conferencePapers


In his book, Asia as Method (Duke University Press, 2010), Chen Kuan-Hsing deconstructs “the West and the rest” world view and argues for a paradigm shift to look at Asian reality with a de-imperialized, de-colonized and de-cold war mentality. His work has already produced fruitful academic discussions among advocates and antagonists in social science. In this paper, I examine methodological issues and philosophy of science in Chen’s proposal based on my earlier work on Asian education research methodology (Comparative Education, 2011).
