The Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics

Reconsidering the 1927 Solvay Conference

We reconsider the crucial 1927 Solvay conference in the context of current research in the foundations of quantum theory. Contrary to folklore, the interpretation question was not settled at this conference and no consensus was reached; instead, a More Reconsidering the 1927 Solvay Conference

The Bohr-Rosenfeld Work on the Epistemology of Quantum Electrodynamics

In this paper I will discuss the significance of the work by Niels Bohr and his young co-worker Léon Rosenfeld on the epistemological problem about the measurability of electromagnetic field quantities. Their work was published in two More The Bohr-Rosenfeld Work on the Epistemology of Quantum Electrodynamics

EPR and the Hole Argument: In What Sense Did Einstein Think Quantum Mechanics Incomplete?

Recent scholarship has located the argument for the incompleteness of quantum mechanics in the context of a broader discussion in the late-1920s and early 1930s, involving figures like Heisenberg and Dirac, More EPR and the Hole Argument: In What Sense Did Einstein Think Quantum Mechanics Incomplete?

Constructing the Myth of the Copenhagen Interpretation

The emergence of the so-called ‘Copenhagen interpretation’ of quantum mechanics has been the subject of much interest, both historical and philosophical. According to the familiar historical account, what we now refer to as the ‘Copenhagen interpretation’ had its origins in More Constructing the Myth of the Copenhagen Interpretation
