On Deconstructionism and the death of Deconstruction-Derrida

From matociquala:


Deconstuctionism ate my baby.

Seriously. I hate it so much I'm completely, incoherently unreasonable about it. I left academia in part due to deconstructionist disgust.

I find it not just masturbatory, but inhumane, and I think it's philosophically linked to the solipsist excesses of corporate imperialism, the Bush administration, and people who say "I feel" as if their unresearched gut-level prejudices were as valuable as an expert opinion.

It's only *slightly* less evil than social Darwinism.
