Transcendent, Transcendental

Transcendent, Transcendental. These words, quite different in meaning with Kant, differed as used by the schoolmen no otherwise than as substantive and adjective, transcendental meaning of or belonging to a transcendent. The six transcendents were realities above, transcending the predicaments. They were denoted by the letters R E U B A V—res, ens, unum, bonum, aliquid, verum.


In the Kantian philosophy transcendent means what is beyond the bounds of human cognition and thought; transcendents are therefore set aside by him as unattainable. Transcendental is his title for those forms of thought which are not given by experience, but necessary to that, and to all mental operation upon that.
