Transcendence

 

a philosophical term that designates—in contrast to immanence—what is beyond the world of phenomena and is inaccessible to theoretical cognition. The term was used in this sense by I. Kant in the works of his critical period (see Soch., vol. 3, Moscow, 1964, p. 338). Kant distinguishes—although not always consistently—the transcendent from the transcendental. God, the soul, and immortality are regarded by Kant as transcendent; in his view, while transcendent objects lie beyond the bounds of theoretical cognition, they can be apprehended by faith, supported by the postulates of practical reason. The concept of transcendence has no place in Marxist philosophy.
