This chapter explores the traits of absolute domains that relate to finality. Absolute domains are forms that actualize a transspatial potential and permits the modulation of behavior in terms of potentialities and possibilities. The chapter further discusses the dissymmetry between spatial and temporal survey, and explains that temporal survey implicates the life of “sense” in history. Finally, Ruyer shows that absolute domains are the necessary conditions for freedom and for work-activity that he defined in the second chapter, as well as the key to finalist activity.
