DETERMINISM -- Philosophical doctrine that everything in the world including human action is the inevitable consequence of preceding states of affairs and natural Laws. Thus there is no human freedom. Can also be called Conditioning or Causation or Causality, and specifically, the Principle of Sufficient Reason. The most extreme variety is fatalism.
Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor E. Frankl
"Everything can be taken from a man but ...the last of the human freedoms - to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way." p.104 "There is also purpose in life ... in man's attitude to his existence, an existence restricted by external forces." p.106
