Returning to Finland after a few months of fieldwork in late 1991, I started feeling like I had seen the future in Peru. To be more exact, glimpses of some future scenarios were emerging in Finland. The existence of these scenarios had at least one implication on the global geopolitical order. This implication, for its part, could open new possibilities for a more equal pedagogical relationship between Europe and Latin America. To the extent, attributes normally associated with countries of the Global South become more visible in Europe, Europeans could learn to learn from the South.
