Example text

5 Will universities, and their international studies specialists, be in the forefront of or trail behind changes in world order? Will they really open to the innovation of globalization studies? To sum up, it is worth recalling that on more than one occasion Susan Strange held that international studies is like an open range, home to many different types of research. Today, there is diversity, but surely one should not overlook the fences that hold back the strays. Mavericks who work in non-Western discourses, economic and political geographers, postmodernists and poststructuralists, not to mention humanists (whose contributions are emphasized by Alker 1996; Puchala 2000; and others), have faced real barriers.

It would seem that in light of the distinctive combinations of evolving global structures and local conditions in various regions, globalization enhances, not reduces, the importance of the comparative method. However, there is the matter of exploring disciplinary and comparative themes within changing parameters and examining the interactions between these parameters and the localities. Similarly, what does globalization mean for development and area studies? Philip McMichael (2004: 152) holds that ‘[t]he globalization project succeeded the development project’.

In explaining transformations in this manner, Kuhn falls short insofar as he underestimates the tenacity of forerunner paradigms and their ability to modify themselves. By all indications in the social sciences, they fight back, usually with gusto. Nevertheless, by identifying the propellant of a new paradigm as the refusal to accept the evasion of anomalies in conjunction with the quest for an alternative, Kuhn has contributed powerfully to understanding theoretical innovation. In this vein, it is well to recall Weber’s ‘ “Objectivity” in Social Science and Social Policy’ (1949).
