Causal determinism (also known as determinism) is the idea that all facts and events are necessitated by other events and exemplify natural laws. The roots of the notion of determinism lie in a very common philosophical idea:

Everything can, in principle, be explained; everything that is, has a sufficient reason for being and being as it is, and not otherwise.

The concept of determinism in the domain of human action is often contrasted with free will. The argument called indeterminism negates deterministic causality as a factor and opposes the deterministic argument. Predeterminism, on the other hand, proposes there is an unbroken chain of prior occurrences stretching back to the origin of the universe.
