I shall understand physical determinism as the doctrine that every physical event has a physical event as its necessary and suffici-ent cause (and no non-physical event as either a necessary or a sufficient cause). This paper seeks to show that no one would be justified in holding this doctrine unless it could be shown to make successful predictions; and that such predictions could only be obtained if we assume the doctrine to be false.
