The blog’s German-sounding name has indeed caught my attention and I started reveling in its contents.
“Dekonztruktschon”, clearly implies the English word deconstruction which according to Wikipedia (
) is a term that French philosopher Jacques Derrida introduced in 1967. In one of Derrida’s writings he defined- deconstruction, “the effort to take this limitless context into account, to pay the sharpest and broadest attention possible to context, and thus to an incessant movement of recontextualization.”
The author Rodrigo Rivera however simply describes his blog site as his way of looking at things by breaking them into smaller parts in order to understand how each part makes the whole and then putting them again together as a new construction. As he said, “it is simply a way of thinking, of knowing and of understanding about things and events in our society.”
A neophyte blogger as he humbly describes himself, Rod as his colleagues fondly called him, started “Dekonztruktschon” in May 23, 2010. He’s been blogging way back in 2009 through his other blog sites. Rod, a former youth leader, a community organizer, a political activist, a journalist and now a blogger wants to share his thoughts and ideas in able to inspire others.
Rodrigo Rivera teaches communication in a university in Manila. He describes himself as a communication expert. He is also a trainer and consultant by profession. He earned his Master of Arts in Communication at Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila (PLM). He is now studying doctoral degree in Communication at the University of the Philippines (UP).
“I need an outlet what goes in my head can be externalized, and then objectivized at the moment and internalized by others as well. As I interest myself in understanding the whole, I take it by parts, break the whole and piece them together in reinvented form. That is deconstruction,” Rod said. ECjr
