[Xmca-l] Re: help with Russian

I haven't got an answer, but when I think of deterministic it means something particular without a doubt is going to result. Causal is something is going to generate something in that it always generates but it isn't certain what. That's how I look at it. Hence cause/result. Said cause determines said result. It seems the nuance is directional.

There is also the term fatalistic, but this swims into philosophical waters, and there may be sharks there, Andy.
