    Project Description

    Western and Confucian concepts of scholarship and learning are usually portrayed as polar opposites, with Western educationalists emphasising the deficits of international students from Confucian heritage cultures. Rather than working from historical cultural assumptions, this project will for the first time provide the direct, authentic accounts of expert scholars on both sides to show the similarities between and differences within both these intellectual traditions. This will provide an evidential, not polemic, basis for enhanced engagement between the two intellectual traditions and for understanding the ways in which they are changing in response to contemporary realities.
