Abstract

This essay argues for a reorientation in medicine, a reorientation that integrates Descartes’s tree-like approach to medical knowledge, which positions medical care in traditional, vertically hierarchical processes of patient differentiation, with the rhizome-like approach proposed by Deleuze and Guattari, which offers a more horizontal, weblike approach to patient care. The result would be a symbiosis that better uses the strengths of both models to treat patients.
