Subject: modelling rhizomatically?
In "Gathered fields: A tale about rhizomes" (2017), anthropologist Marilyn
Strathern responds to a comment on Deleuze and Guattari’s A Thousand
Plateaus with this comment:
> Root-tree and canal-rhyzome are not in antithesis as opposed models
> would be, but are opposed asymmetrically: the one offers a model, while
> the other overturns the practice of modelling.
What (re)conception of modelling would be required for it not to be
overturned by rhizomatic complexity? Can the same be said of simulation?
