Contemporary scientific determinism is a grand induction from scientific experience. Limitations on measurement of the kind represented by the Heisenberg uncertainty principle have thrown doubt on deterministic philosophy. But the case against determinism does not stand examination. Scientific support for deterministic philosophy continues to be justified.
