Résumé / Abstract

In the present article we approach the issue of ontological determinism in physics. We propose a clarification of the concept of possibility that is useful for addressing this issue. By means of this clarification, the concept of probability can be given an interpretation that is meaningful for the practice of theoretical physics. Finally, these clarified concepts of possibility and probability are applied to the paradigmatic case of highly unstable systems, and it is argued that in this domain determinism and indeterminism can coexist in a single classical system.
