“Immanence”: A Philosophical Buzzword? Between the Critique of Immanence and the Immanent Critique

Abstract

The “viral” diffusion of the concept of immanence in the philosophical and cultural panorama risks to make it become a buzzword with “contagious” effects, capable of generating a conceptual pathology or dysfunctionality. Undoubtedly, “immanence” is a valid concept, especially on the logic-metaphysical level; however, from a political or social point of view, it has aroused various perplexities. Therefore, in this paper, I discuss some of the basic ideas of a possible “critique of immanence” (§ 1), and then I highlight the outlines of the perspective of the “immanent critique” (§ 3). Finally, I suggest that we can find a possible solution to the tensions between immanence and transcendence if we pose the problem on an anthropological or anthropological-philosophical level (§ 3).
