  • Descrizione: this chapter presents critical terms and central figures related to the origins and evolution of postmodernist theory and culture. these terms and names begin with the alphabet d and they include: deconstruction, deleuze, jacques derrida, differend and discourse. the real force of deconstruction lies well beyond claims regarding the history of philosophy and derrida's reading of foundational texts. deconstruction refuses the orders and constructive paths that define a certain conception of reading; texts are not material objects that need to be translated back into the reality that accounts for their sense. what makes deconstruction as a general movement postmodern is its anti‐foundationalism. literary discourse does not designate simply a collection of great works of literature, nor the kind of writing or language use exemplified by literature, nor even the totality of everything that gets said about literature. rather, it is a particular way of thinking and speaking about literature.
