Deconstruction The following entry discusses deconstruction theory as a method of critical analysis of philosophical and literary texts.

Deconstruction is a literary criticism movement originated. Deconstruction was both created and has been profoundly influenced by the French philosopher Jacques Derrida. Derrida, who coined the term deconstruction, argues that in Western culture, people tend to think and express their thoughts in terms of binary oppositions (white / black, masculine / feminine, cause /effect, conscious /unconscious, presence / absence, speech writing).

A few disclaimers before I give you the tl;dr on deconstruction: You should read some readers of Derrida alongside his work. I would recommend beginning by reading Spivak's introduction to Of Grammatology.I would also recommend reading Jonathon Culler's On Deconstruction.I think Culler's book is the most sophisticated and well thought out reading, it's good on all the basics.

To the Editors: John R. Searle’s review of Jonathan Culler’s On Deconstruction [NYR, October 27] looks like a critical but unbiased examination of deconstructive theory.

One need only read it carefully to discover that appearances are, in this case at least, almost perfectly deceiving. Early in his review (p. 74) Searle wonders if Derrida and [ ]. Deconstructivism is, in fact, not a new architecture style, nor is it an avant-garde movement against architecture or society.

Deconstructing Literature The three main points we’ve discussed: For deconstruction, 1. Unfortunately, Signs of the Times is not that gh the specific targets of Lehman’s book are deconstruction and de Man, at heart it is underwritten by a severe anti-professionalism.

To put it in a slightly different way, Lehman’s real problem is not with deconstruction per se, but with the professional tenor of literary studies. "Against Ethics is beautifully written, clever, learned, thought-provoking, and even inspiring." --Theological Studies "Writing in the form of his ideas, Caputo offers the reader a truly exquisite reading experience.

Despite Derrida's insistence that deconstruction is not a method, but an activity of reading, deconstruction has tended to employ discernable techniques.

Many deconstructive arguments revolve around the analysis of conceptual oppositions. A famous example is the opposition between writing and speech (Derrida ).

This issue strikes deeply and close to home. Daniel Heimbach in “Why Not Same-Sex Marriage: A Manual for Defending Marriage against Radical Deconstruction,” a book just released by Trusted Books, aims not only to clarify the stakes but to supply much needed help in addressing this issue.The monuments of Western literature came tumbling down long before confederate statues.
