Let us turn for a moment to his discussion of it in “The Deduction of Presentation” which is found in the final section of the Foundation of Theoretical Science, in the Science of Knowledge. xxxiv Introduction In that Deduction, Fichte investigates the movement involved in the wavering of the imagination. The wavering occurs between the ideal and the real, between the finite and the infinite, between the Self and the Beyond.

Thus, there appears to be a contradiction: the imagination is the “sole-in-itself,” the Absolute, and yet it is also only one moment of the Absolute. Reason and imagination are the same, and yet they are different. How are we to reconcile these two claims? In the move from Kant’s view to Schelling’s and Hegel’s, we appear to have merely shifted from one kind of rift to another. In Kant there was a rift between the syntheses of the imagination and the ideas of reason. Schelling and Hegel try to move beyond this by saying that in both syntheses and ideas, what is operative is the sundering imagination.
