"The specter that Marx was talking about then, communism, was there without being there. It was not yet there. It will never be there. There is no DASEIN of the specter, but there is no DASEIN without the uncanniness, without the strange familiarity (Unheimlichkeit) of some specter. What is a specter? What is its story and what is its time?"

Jacques Derrida, Specters of Marx (Peggy Kamuf trans.)
