Jacques Derrida, Deconstruction and the Application of Deconstruction to the Institution of Education

Jacques Derrida is portrayed as a man who stands to destroy the very institution of education as we know it. However, nothing could be further from the truth. Derrida and his idea of deconstruction, which Derrida defines as simply a "process of reading" actually uphold the educational institution. This paper examines the definition of deconstruction and how deconstruction can be applied to the future of academia.
