Determinism is the philosophical view that events occur based on the preceding state of the universe and according to fixed principles. This makes the outcome of all situations inevitable. In this view, the universe operates like a clock which operates according to physical laws.

While determinism has a long history, it has recently been challenged by scientific discoveries in quantum mechanics that treats events probabilistically.
