  • [Audio] Is there a difference between a mechanistic concept of life, and one that is deterministic?




    No, not really. I think determinism is a form of a mechanistic point of view. By mechanistic I mean that you can't twist your arm to the right unless there is a muscle that does that. That you can't get up and walk unless you have muscles that let you do that. That plants do not grow, they depend on sunlight, temperature, soil conditions, moisture--they depend on many interacting variables. There is no single cause for human behavior; there are many interacting variables that shape human behavior.
