decisions, decisions

A clockpunk world, with philosophic engines.  Or possiblhy philosophic machines.  Or mechanisms.  or mechanica or other weird term. . . .

If it were a robot-equivalent I could call it an automaton, but while the philosophic mechanica have powerful effects (mostly magical), they don't move.

You want words that suggest the era you are dealing with.  Unfortuantely that gets interesting when your era doesn't have an exact historical counterpart, and you want to name one of the non-parallel things.
