“Absolute Surfaces” and Absolute Domains of Survey

(p.90) 9 “Absolute Surfaces” and Absolute Domains of Survey

Raymond Ruyer

University of Minnesota Press

This chapter defines and elaborates the notions of “absolute surfaces” and “absolute or nondimensional survey” that stand at the heart of the book. This survey ensures the unity of the visual domains for the subject enclosed within this domain, proving thereby the lack of a need for transcendence. The surface and domains of survey precede structures, patterns, and other forms the visual field (and the field of thought) and organize the relationships of the living.

Keywords:   Absolute surfaces, Absolute survey, Nondimensional survey, Transcendence, Visual field, Relationships, Forms, Philosophy
