Ask Google, you'll get at least as much as you need, and you'll see
myriad connections and branches.

All the best,

Michael Luskin asked,

>What is deconstruction?

The belief that words have so many different meanings for each and
everyone that communication is virtually impossible. (Logically, then,
the deconstructionist's statement of this belief is itself
incomprehensible, as is this, my judgement of it.) With the Knight in
"Alice in Wonderland," the deconstructionist says, "Words mean what I
want them to mean..."

>What is existentialism?

The belief that life is essentially absurd, and the choice to continue
to live or to die is absolutely arbitrary.  If one chooses to live, he
makes his life by building it with choices and consequent acts that
insure his greatest freedom to choose.  His choices announce to others
his intentions regarding them and hopefully create a society around him
that insures his safety.  Inevitably this leads to "Do unto others," and
those "inalienable rights" - but without the religious convictions on
which those are predicated.

>What is natural law?

A general sense of proportion.

>What is deconstruction?

Recycled nominalism (Frenchified)

Cheers,

(Not to be confused with French-a fries, something you get with your
Beeg-a Mac)
