Neste artigo, práticas acadêmicas dos anos 80 em torno da desconstrução são postas sob a perspectiva das teorias construcionistas e da cultura que caracterizam as concepções ocidentais. Ambas - construcionismo e desconstrução - são colocadas sob a perspectiva das concepções melanésias. Estas, sem as premissas construcionistas, exemplificam certos modos duais, mas não binários, de simbolizações e relações.



Academic deconstructive pratices are here considered through the perspective of theories that consider society and culture as construction, characteristic of occidental conceptions. Then construction and decontruction are here considered from the vantage point ofmelanesian conceptions. Without premisses of construction these conceptions are examples of dual – not binary - ways of symbols and relations.
