(le) déterminisme rétrospectif


Monsieur Vincent Citot était absolument un de mes écrivains philsophiques préférés quand j’étais au collège (ouais, au collège) et il a écrit beaucoup sur ce terme « le déterminisme rétrospectif. »

Example sentence(s):
  • C’est donc une pétition de principe, comme le déterminisme rétrospectif qui voit l’antérieur depuis le postérieur.
