Preferentialism is presented as a general philosophical concept whereby it is the decisive criterion of nature which imposes preferential bases of reference in all major areas of philosophy. Preferentialism in Physics leads to the recognition of an absolute reference frame as a marker of absolute space.

Le Préférentialisme est présenté comme un concept philosophique général où le critère décisif de la nature impose des bases de référence préférentielles dans tous les domaines majeurs de la philosophie. Le Préférentialisme en physique mène à un cadre de référence absolu servant de marqueur de l'espace absolu.

Key words: Poincaré; History of Relativity; Cosmic Microwave Background; CMB; Absolute Space; Preferentialism.
