On Derrida's Deconstruction

by Maria Odete Madeira

The postmodern deconstructionist movement inscribes itself in a skeptic referential frame, organized and structured, from methodological criteria based upon a fundamental relativistic principle that strived to demonstrate the fallibility of that which was considered to be dogmatic evidences.

It is in the limit zone, displaced by the exercise of conceptual oppositions that the mechanism of deconstruction, proposed by Derrida, as a methodological criterion, is applied.

Questioning the unity of the concept of end, Derrida strives to question the discourse, the sense, the individual and collective values, with the objective of determining the strategic theoretical/practical borders between Philosophy and Literature.
