Against a descriptive analysis or even eulogies on the neoliberal impact on Asian higher education such as "brain gain/drain," managerialism, marketization, and globalization, this theoretical chapter takes a rather critical position regarding the ongoing neoliberalization of higher education as a field of study in Asia. It examines the discourse of Confucian heritage culture and its methodological issues in knowledge production, followed by some recent counterarguments against the universalism of research methodology by exploring the possibility of Asia as a higher education research methodology.
