Determinism is the doctrine that events are determined by natural causes.

  • Determinism is the philosophical doctrine that every event in the universe is the inevitable consequence of a preceding cause. [1]

Incompatibilism views it as being in conflict with the doctrine of free will, while Compatibilism sees no conflict between the two.

The Buddhist and Taoist doctrine of Impermanence holds that nothing in existence is eternal and that all that is, has ever been, and ever will be is subject to the invincible and inevitable process of the wheel of successive change without beginning or end, as the essential nature of being itself.
