Deconstructionism in life
BEN A. BENTICAN, Baguio City

French philosopher Jacques Derrida defines deconstructionism as the philosophy of unmasking the sedimented ways of thinking by removing the structure or system when looking at reality.

Deconstruction, as a process in the practice of this philosophy, is a part of the concept development in the learning standards of the K to 12 basic education curriculum under the cognitive process dimension of analyzing. It is actually a creative way of thinking or unconventional thinking.

As a teacher, myself, to the millennial learners, I need to practice and exercise my mind on the process of this philosophy guided by the philosophical principle of thinking by Derrida.

Under the principle, people need to develop the skill in deconstructive strategy in analyzing an issue in life. During the process of deconstruction, the goal should be to see the hidden alternative or new ideas and meanings in the given issue.

For instance, teaching the millennial learners on deconstruction process can gradually develop a culture of change among them by having a changed behavior towards personal problems, family issues, problems in the workplace and relationship and other challenges in life including unpleasant messages and comments. Our skill in deconstruction can help us explore the neglected corner of our problem and not to be imprisoned in it.
