A Short History of Philosophy





Determinism. A name given by Continental philosophers to the creed which views all events and consequently all actions as fixed from the first.


 As held by a theist, this doctrine becomes the same with that which we call predestinarianism, and it is hard to see how the believer in an absolute and perfect God can do otherwise than hold it. Its compatibility with our belief in the free will of man is a subject which cannot be entered on here. Suffice it to say that such compatibility is recognised and maintained; and that the true contradictory of determinism is not freedom but contingency, but only such contingency as implies uncertainty in the event of action.
