Some Cross-Cultural Comparisons “We shall certainly not be in a position to appreciate the differences literacy makes in a given society at a given period until we have some idea about the answers to questions [about differences in context]. To get a sense of those differences, we need, ideally, to take a range of different societies and periods into account: we need, in fact, a comparative approach.” Geoffrey Lloyd (122)
