Determinism

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingEntry for encyclopedia/dictionarypeer-review

    Abstract

    Determinism is the thesis that historical processes occur following scientific laws that ensure that all constituent events and states of the world are necessary and inevitable. Every event is caused by a previous event, all the way back to the Big Bang at the start of the universe. The way things are now could not have been otherwise.
