    Immanence refers to something inherent within oneself. Transcendence means to go beyond ordinary limits or to be superior. De Beauvoir uses “immanence” to describe the domain set on women; the limits of the domain are the boundaries of themselves. “Transcendence” expresses the opposing force, men. Men are thought to be powerful in the external universe, while women are more passive. Throughout history, men claim themselves to be more productive than women. For example, in times of war only…

    He attests the Bible is accurate in the revelation of Christ to the early Church and mirrors the revelation of God in Christ. Moreover, Grenz and Olsen fleetingly touch on evangelicalism once again in the conclusion of their book after revisiting the liberal theologians of the 20th century. They contend that the 20th century did not bring any consensus to the issues of God’s transcendence and immanence. In fact, they argue that it did the antithesis and exacerbated “the tension between immanence…

    Deconstruction of Conceptual Reason: Transcendental Immanence and Faith Introduction In Climacus’ writing, the relation of faith and knowledge is dialectical. On the one hand, knowledge is not a necessary condition for faith. But on the other hand, the reason behind knowledge is a sufficient condition for faith. To have faith, one can advance upon the Socratic reason and go beyond: philosophize, limit to paradox, and cease to think. But this is not unwilling passivity, because the subject…

In one of the chapters Beauvoir goes into depth about three kinds of illusions that women construct that demonstrate transcendence within the home or within their domestic…

In other words, the woman is culturally programmed to think and act in a certain manner and hence, the woman has always been constructed as an "other." In this regard, de Beauvoir refers to the master-slave relationship and the slave's awareness of his subordination, to urge women about her emancipation.

    powerful According to, Olson, “God is powerful beyond human comprehension and not limited by any weakness or inability.” In essence, there is nothing and no one on earth who compares to God’s greatness and might. This does not mean that He is a more powerful version of humanity. Rather, God is above the limitations of human might. Because God is all powerful, Christians have confidence that God will empower them to advance his kingdom. In ministry, then, God empowers ministers to preach the…

    Infinity for Levinas is surpassing a limit; this limit is that of the same, which can only be achieved through the presence of the other as other, though it is in me yet it transcends this immanence. Action and Intention for Levinas presupposes infinity. Action is a product of the surplus of the incarnated consciousness, this surplus moves the subject and this action passes thru the “barrier of immanence” thus infinity.
