Debates around agroecology most often focus on the depth and radicality of the change and relate to different visions of agroecology, which tends to eclipse the ontological relationships of actors (or researchers) to the very 'change process' itself. This book is an endeavor to explain relationships to change in agroecological transitions, referring to two contrasting and ideal-typical ontological relationships to change, the determinist perspective and the open-ended perspective. Many diverse cases of agroecological transitions are discussed, in order to highlight the fact that these perspectives are not always exclusive in transition process but that they can be articulated successively or combined complementarily.
