Limitations of Determinism in Classical Mechanics
- 119 Downloads
The search for a sure explanation and prediction of phenomena is the main aim of science. Such an explanation can be obtained on the basis of deterministic laws and deductive reasoning only. On the other hand it is well known that in many fields of science deterministic description is impossible, so one has to use statistical laws which instead of exact predictions give probabilities of individual results. Therefore the application of statistical laws in science has stimulated many discussions, and numerical attempts at epistemological justification of them have been success less.
