Determinism is a philosophical view, where all events are determined completely by previously existing causes. Deterministic Theories throughout the history of philosophy have developed from diverse and sometimes overlapping motives and considerations. the opposite of determinism is some kind of indeterminism (otherwise called nondeterminism) or randomness. Determinism is often contrasted with free will, although some philosophers claim that the two are compatible.
