Comparatism is reflexive comparison. The regime of comparatism is the horizon of knowledge in which each individual comparison is received and judged. The aim of this book is to turn the comparative insight on itself and compare different comparative moments, exploring various frameworks of comparison in history, religion and anthropology.
