Much of the philosophical talk about determinism proceeds as if it is understood that a deterministic process is necessarily predictable. Here is a typical quotation, taken from A. J. Ayer's essay " Freedom and Necessity: " " Nevertheless, it may be said, if the postulate of determinism is valid… CONTINUE READING
