Cook, C.C.H. (2013) 'Transcendence, immanence, and mental health.', in Spirituality, theology and mental health : interdisciplinary perspectives. London: SCM Press, pp. 141-159.
The concept of transcendence has featured in debates about spirituality and psychiatry both as a core defining feature of what spirituality might be considered to be and also as a significant point of contention. However, it is amenable to interpretation within both psychological and theo logical frameworks of reference and provides a possible common point of reference to professional and academic discourse. Properly understood, transcendence should be seen in a close relationship with immanence, rather than in opposition to it. A clearer analysis of the relationship between immanence and transcendence in spiritual traditions and practices has potential to clarify some of the present controversies in this field.
