Why computer simulations are not inferences, and in what sense they are experiments
The question of where, between theory and experiment, computer simulations (CSs) locate on the methodological map is one of the central questions in the epistemology of simulation (cf. Saam JournalExpand
Is the Reality Criterion Analytic?
Tim Maudlin has claimed that EPR's Reality Criterion is analytically true. We argue that it is not. Moreover, one may be a subjectivist about quantum probabilities without giving up on objectiveExpand
Quantum Information Versus Epistemic Logic: An Analysis of the Frauchiger–Renner Theorem

  • 26 September 2019
A recent no-go theorem (Frauchiger and Renner in Nat Commun 9(1):3711, 2018) establishes a contradiction from a specific application of quantum theory to a multi-agent setting. The proof of thisExpand
The best of many worlds, or, is quantum decoherence the manifestation of a disposition?

  • 1 May 2019
Whether the phenomenon of quantum decoherence, the vanishing of interference and detectable entanglement on quantum systems in virtue of interactions with the environment, can be understood as the manifestation of a disposition is investigated. Expand
Philosophical Interlude II: Locality, Causality, Reality (Again)
How do the issues of ‘realism’, ‘locality’ and ‘causality’ raised in Chap. 4 connect? While we have already said something about the first two issues, it seems that we should now ask what we reallyExpand

An argument against global no miracles
Incompatibility and the pessimistic induction: a challenge for selective realism
Two powerful arguments have famously dominated the realism debate in philosophy of science: The No Miracles Argument (NMA) and the Pessimistic Meta-Induction (PMI). A standard response to the PMI isExpand
Reconsidering Knowledge, or, Coming to Terms With Quantum Mechanics
In conclusion of the previous chapter, we argued that the strong involvement of probabilities in the formalism of QM and the fact that one is not bound to introducing (formally explicit) hiddenExpand
