About this book

This book provides a philosophical, socio-political and theoretical understanding of the notion of Becoming in the context of the related concepts, and in contemplation of the notion of Being. Deriving from different traditions from various countries, these concepts act as windows on contemporary early years settings and communities around the world where adults map out infant becomings. This book is a valuable resource for early childhood educators, students, professionals, researchers, and policy makers around the globe who seek to understand the locatedness of infant becomings in space and time.
