Could a (critical) rational person engage in rhizomatic learning?
Critical rationalism is a philosophy that views upon post-modernism as a wrong method of thinking. (To put it mildly) (as do for instance Alan Sokal, Jean Bricmond and Juergen Habermas)
Does one have to be a believer of Deleuze to study rhizomatic learning?
For critical views on Deleuze :Slavoj Žižek, Organs without Bodies (2003), Pascal Engel, “The Decline and Fall of French Nietzscheo-Structuralism” (1994) and others.
Is authority of teachers a necessity in teaching?
Could one teach (rhizomatically or other way) if one does not master the subject? Or as a teacher asked me: Could one teach digital citizenship if not a user of digital media?
Obscurantism abuses the reader’s natural sense of curiosity and interpretive charity with the promise of deep and profound insights about a designated subject matter that is often vague or elusive. When the attempt to understand what the speaker means requires excessive hermeneutic efforts, interpreters are reluctant to halt their quest for meaning.
