Deconstruction is an approach to analysis or way of thinking theorized by Jacques Derrida. It is a theoretical approach, as oppose to the physical act of taking something apart.
Deconstruction aims at looking at the central idea from which something has been made and debunks the idea by pointing out what does not make sense.

6. Form propositions (ie. ________ could be considered a ________ if ________.)
