    Abstract

    This essay's intentions are to discuss truth and reveal it as a fallible structure and to briefly discuss other structures and their supposed relation to the idea of truth. Language will then be explored in detail with reference to Derrida and Deconstruction, the intention of this being to reveal the vast amount of possible interpretations or misinterpretations when dealing with language. Derrida and Deconstruction has been explained within this essay with the aim of exploring how language and thought process can be privileged/ marginalised and so forth. With the theories and thoughts behind deconstruction explained it will give solid ground for the argument that structures by their very nature are flawed. This will give us reason to assume that truth therefore is flawed. Deconstructive methods can then be used to explore naturalism and Stanislavskian methodology. It can not be the intention of this essay to say that Stanislavski's methods are wrong, for to say such a thing would be a contradiction in terms of Deconstructive theory. The intention will be to unravel and suggest that this method of acting does not and can not hold anymore truth than any other method. Alternatives will then be suggested which will not necessarily preference truth as the eventual desired outcome.
