Immanence in psychology is the idea that The divine or spiritual reality is present and active within the human mind and the natural world. It contrasts with transcendence, which posits a divine or spiritual reality that is separate and beyond human experience. Some psychologists, such as Jung, Tillich, and Teilhard de Chardin, have explored the implications of Immanence for understanding human nature, consciousness, and evolution. They have suggested that Immanence implies a Connection between individual and totality, a depth of reason and being, and an energy of evolution that drives humanity toward greater communion.
