Indeterminacy

Aryeh Botwinick explains that “[t]he concept of indeterminacy refers to the quality or state of not being precisely determined or definitely fixed. It can be divided into two subcategories: (a) overdetermination and (b) underdetermination. Over determination means having more than one determining factor, and underdetermination signifies falling short of being fully determined by some feature(s) of a situation. The worldview that is opposed to indeterminacy is determinism which is the theory or doctrine that acts of the will, occurrences in nature, and social or psychological phenomena are causally determined by preceding events or natural laws.”
