The question to be considered here is … what is a text? You have in your hands a text. It is indeed a multiplicity of texts, where the visual images are to be seen as texts in themselves, and as such, it becomes part of a general concept of a text that goes beyond these specific pages to include every type of communicative utterance, written, verbal and visual. This concept, already expansive, is given even more breadth in Paul Ricoeur’s hermeneutic theory, wherein the concept of the text is extended into the concept of ‘textuality’, which defines any human action or situation.
Full of gratitude, he reached out to the shadow, but the Samaritan never fully revealed himself. As a shadow, he appeared and disappeared without warning or direction.

The wolf man knew that his new and proper name would be disfigured and misspelled, retranscribed’, by Freudian theory just as the logic of tracing is in fact tree logic, the logic of reproduction, redundant even before it is finished. As Deleuze points out, Freud, ‘on the verge of discovering a rhizome, always returns to the roots’ (2003: 27). A word of caution here, before we go on our way. The concepts of multiplicity and ubiquitous connectivity dictate that to accept a simplistic dualism between map and tracing would set us on a dangerously narrow pathway towards binary logic.
