of or related to determinism as deterministic theories
- an unavoidable result of antecedent sufficient causes
process whose outcome hinges on the prior stages. If a project has actually one result it's predetermined.
1874, from determinist (see determinism) + -ic.
Algorithm, model, process, process, etc., whoever resulting behavior is completely dependant on its preliminary condition and inputs, and which can be not arbitrary or stochastic. Processes or tasks having only one result are considered deterministic their outcome is 'pre-determined.' A deterministic algorithm, if given the same input information will always produce the same production information.
Modern determinists differ from the earlier advocates of their theory in their endeavour to exhibit at least the compatibility of morality with the absence of freedom, if not the enhancement of moral values which, according to some of its advocates, follows upon the acceptance of the deterministic account of conduct.
