Are we free to choose what we want to do later as a job? Or, are we under social and economic pressure to pursue jobs that are not necessarily what we want?
Social determinism is the theory that holds that all human actions are determined by their prior states and that individuals have no willpower to change this determination. People in this system, therefore, have no free will and, if they believe they have it, they have only the appearance of it.
