This report contains a discussion on determinisme and chance based on an essay by J. Monod "Neccessity and Chance" and two articles by C. S. Peirce "The Doctrin of Neccessity Examined" and "Evolutionary Love". Assuming that Peirces theories are consistent with the Fluktuation-Dissipation theorem it is discussed in contrast to J. Monods naturalphilosophy whether chance or determinisme is rulling. Peirces Phaneroscopy is presented and utilized on the material in question in order to reveal the coherence present. It is concluded that scientific laws are statistical expressions and not absolute truths.
