Abstract

This article raises the question of the possibility to use some theoretical insights of Deleuze and Guattari for
solving particular problems arising in education. The author discusses the concept of bodymind education
formulated by Semetsky from the Deleze’s example of learning as swimming. The author doubts if learning as
representation is not valuable in some unexpected situations. She also describes the real example of the
successful bodymind learner who experienced failure in university studies in order to involve the
Deleuzian/Guattarian opposition to vertical learning and the idea of transversality as the possible solution for
unsuccessful learning in university situation.
