Determinism/Actualism/Dennett: some authors: if determinism is correct, actualism must also be right. Or the other way aroun. If actualism is wrong, indeterminism would have to be right - DennettVs: this is wrong! E.g. This oxygen atom can combine with two hydrogen atoms. So something is possible which is not real now, therefore determinism is wrong - DennettVsActualism: it is wrong, regardless of the truth or falsity of determinism.

Actualism/DennettVsNietzsche: he did not believe in any variants, but in exact repetition - therefore he was a follower of actualism.
