"Deconstruction signifies a project of critical thought whose task
is to locate and 'take apart'....
'Deconstruction' is somewhat less negative than the Heideggerian or
Nietzschean terms 'destruction' or 'reversal';
it suggests that certain foundational concepts of metaphysics will never
be entirely eliminated...."
