Deconstructive reading of a text
Deconstructive reading must be considered as a strategy exploring the paths of thinking. In this strategy emphasis is laid on (1) the textuality of the text which offers a point outside the logocentric totality from where logocentrism can deconstructively be articulated; (2) the suspended position of the author who disappears behind the text, not dominating it anymore; (3) the senselessness of the problem of reference since the text is infinitely disseminated in its continuous undecidable allusion to other texts (4) the re-interpretation of interpretation which is directed towards the preoccupied dissimulation of the texture of the text itself which amounts to writing as the production of a signifying structure that alludes to nothing but a labyrinth of the path of thinking challenging thinking to venture upon it.
