" The productive mind which for the Romantics was at the root of experience had its prototype in Kant's doctrine on how forms of identity and experience depend on mind's synthetic activity. The Romantics generalized from the 'internal' movement of that synthesis in order to describe a movement encompassing mind's activity in the world. Thus generalized, even the synthesis of experience's self-identity is understood as a moment of willing symptomatic of mind's productivity. The continuity which confirms a will as an identity is then found in the direction of its past, while the potential for discontinuity which confirms a will as autonomous - free - is found in the direction of its future. For the Romantics, ideas themselves demonstrated mind's autonomy as a creative transcendence toward the future. Husserl and Dilthey instead encountered the mind's productivity through its movement of perceptive and interpretive conformation with what is given as a flow of presence. For them, Mind moved beyond not as toward the openness of a future, but as into a presence which shows itself as more than can at once be held. In this way, phenomenology and hermeneutics exhibit Mind's transcending movement not as an autonomy expressed toward the future, but as submission found through immersion in presence.
