Between Chance and Choice: Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Determinism
Harald Atmanspacher, Robert Bishop
Imprint Academic, 2002 - Philosophy - 527 pages
Are choice and free will possible in a world governed by deterministic fundamental equations? What sense would determinism make if many events and processes in the world seem to be governed by chance? These and many other questions emphasize the fact that chance and choice are two leading actors on stage whenever issues of determinism are under discussion.
