Transliminality, a construct has been introduced to academic and scientific research in the past decades attracting a growing attention in various fields, say, cognitive sciences, personality psychology, clinical psychology and parapsychology. Transliminality is “a hypothesized tendency for psychological material to cross (trans) thresholds (limines) into and out of consciousness. Conceptualizations of Transliminality describe this psychological process as “a thread” that ties relevant states of consciousness together. According to the findings of researches about creative transliminals , the correlations tended to be positive with transliminality, indicating more creativity and a greater vulnerability to mental illnesses. This correlation has revived the old controversy about madness and genius. According to this point, the main aim of this research with descriptive- review method was to collect the results of current valid studies on Transliminality and its correlated variables. The present research tended to investigate the relationship  between creativity and mental illness in the context of transliminality.
