This paper is designed to examine whether metaphor, meaning and perception are sufficiently dealt with in knowledge visualization. This culminates in the following hypothesis: because knowledge visualization is a process of construction and reconstruction, the only reasonable approach to evaluate its mechanisms and effectiveness has to be deconstructivist. Such an approach is introduced and examined, leading to primary conclusions and an outlook on a theoretical foundation of an upcoming 'scientific discipline'.
