"The image withdraws as ghost or as a ghost of the Idea, destined to disappear in the very ideal presence. It withdraws so as image ‘of'’, as image of something or someone who would not, she or he, be an image. It fades itself as simulacrum or as a face of a being [...] What remains withdrawing from in the image, or what is left in it is withdrawn, with this very withdrawn, it is, indeed, the trace. "
