This chapter describes the temporal-irreversible structure implied in the teleological explanation of natural processes as traditionally understood. Temporal irreversibility in teleological explanation is contrasted to time succession in mechanical explanation. It is suggested that any conception of natural processes-especially living processes-as temporal-irreversible, necessarily recurs to some degree of teleological explanation, even if it rejects the idea of an “exterior” telos or purpose.

Keywords:   Time, teleology, teleonomy, irreversibility, self-organization, production of natural beings, living being
