is understood of something that is free, or independent of another. Hence, as there are various ways wherein one thing may be consider'd is free in respect of another, there arise divers sorts of Absolutes.

Absolute, e. g. sometimes imports a Thing which does not include the Idea of Relation to another ; in which Sense it Hands oppos'd to Relative.

Thus, Man is an absolute Term ; and, on the contrary, Creature and Father are Relatives, the one referring to Creator, the other to Children. See RELATIVE.
