In this chapter I will ﬁrst trace the original meaning of the rhizome which is derived from botany. I then examine Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari’s thought in which the rhizome is proposed as a philosophical concept. I will conclude with the writings of Gauthier and Richard, two educators who have made links between education and Deleuze and Guattari. This journey will allow us to see the differences between the rhizome and the network and to focus on what is essential in moving towards a rhizomatic pedagogy.
