Deconstruction stresses criticality in research of cultural texts. Deconstruction aims at perceiving, categorizing and specifying polarity and contradictions between researched phenomena, concepts and ways of understanding. This is usually done by perceiving various contrasting pairs of elements within the researched topic.

There are no unanimous meanings in cultural texts.

It is possible to produce several possible, and also hidden and ignored, points of view to the cultural texts.

Deconstruction, like post-structuralism, is related to postmodern thinking.
