Wow. Great post and the comments make me think, especially Keith Hamon’s response. When he writes, “Cartography helps me visualize how patterns can echo throughout an ecosystem (classrooms, nations, frog ponds)”–I wonder about George’s comments about the limitations of rhizome to explain how learning occurs–and I think ‘Yes, all quite right.’ Rhizomatic learning isn’t limited to the idea of the rhizome. Rather the patterns Keith writes about, the lines of flight (2 others types of lines as well) , and the six conditions as suggested by D & G represent a learning un/theory–that which can be broken/remade at any moment. Rhizomatic leaning is the ins and outs of stability (codification) and slippages. It’s tacit and explicit ways of knowing. It’s the world of both/and.
