# The Commens DictionaryQuote from ‘Lowell Lectures. 1903. Sixth Lecture. Probability’

Quote:

[Here] you have the three commonest forms of necessitarianism. A holds that every feature of all facts conforms to some law. B holds that the law fully determines every fact, but thinks that some relations of facts are accidental. C holds that uniformity within its jurisdiction is perfect, but confines its application to certain elements of phenomena.
