In this chapter, the author moves away from a focus on individual local projects and individual thinkers to a way of thinking about things, a perspective on the world and relationships, a 'navigational tool': what has been termed posthumanism. Humanism invests the (rational adult) human with the exclusive capacity for intentional agency and identifies the autonomous individual as the fundamental unit for exercising this agency. Early childhood education is a field that prides itself on being inclusive. It works hard at respecting diversity and making all children feel that they belong – through welcoming their families; being attuned to the significance of their gendered, classed, religious and cultural backgrounds and their special needs; and building their relationships with key people in the local communities.
