In the historical affinity of West, language has always been ‘erected’ as a construct of Idea (sign/presence/speech/logos). In this ‘logocentric teleology’ (Derrida), opposition between nature and institution, play of differences between symbol, sign, image etc. is a naïve conceptualization of representation, an uncritical opposition between sensible and intelligible, between soul and body proper and the diversity of sense functions. By the creative links found among various authors such as Walter Benjamin, Theodor Adorno, Gilles Deleuze, Philippe Lacoue- Labarthe, Jacques Derrida, and Jean-Luc Nancy, through the inscription of the belowmentioned keywords found in their numerous studies, this thesis is a theoretical survey of how the erection or the usage of language that has an absolute link with God’s logos that belongs to a particular history and time, can be deconstructed. As a prospect, it, further, will be promised that certain authors in the history of literature, who have been condemned according to their distance from the logos, instead of being rendered in passivity, can be studied by the pathway followed and developed by this thesis.
