The “nihilism of reference” is a consequence of deconstruction developed by Jacques Derrida. The theory of mimetic desire made by the anthropologist René Girard arises from a double exercise in deconstructionism. Consequently, Derrida’s deconstruction itself is also deconstructed. Thus, René Girard releases deconstruction of its nihilistic effects.
