    in the sentence above, i can not decide which part does "which" refer to,
    does it refer to pantheism or panentheism,and naturally, i can not decide which one does the phrase " but also transcends the universe" refer to.
    what is the generic rule for this kind of expressions.
    thank you for your help

    i really need to know this m56, i post it as new tread but no one give a .uck to it , so like you to answer this question above
    "Which" refers to "panentheism", as does "but".

    "...panentheism, which states this*, but also, unlike pantheism, states this**

    * The first "this", above, = states "that God is in everything".
    ** The second "this" = states that "(God) also transcends the universe."

    So panantheism holds that God is in everything and that he/it transcends the universe.

    I'd add to your sentence:

    "Pantheism is distinguished from panentheism, which holds that God is in everything, but that he also transcends the Universe."


    Have a look at this:

    thank you very much, it is all clear now. could you please tell me what if there was no comma before "but" , how would it effect the meaning of the sentence?
    merci bien(thank you very much)

    I think Casiopea has answered that already.
