Transcendental


core definition

Transcendental comes from the verb transcend which means to be beyond the range or domain or grasp of (usually) human experience, reason or belief.


explanatory context

Transcendental can also mean to excel or surpass.


Increasingly, transcendental is being used in the sense of lateral thinking or adopting another frame of reference (thus one transcends ones taken for granteds).


Transcendental as applied to philosophy invokes severalf different ideas, as in transcendental idealism, transcendental phenomenology and transcendental meditation (which attempts to induce detachment from problems and relief from anxiety).
