  • 1 September 1991
Empirical adequacy, formal explanation and understanding are distinct goals of science. While no a priori criterion for understanding should be laid down, there may be inherent limitations on the wayExpand
Quantum tunneling times: A crucial test for the causal program?
It is generally believed that Bohm's version of quantum mechanics is observationally equivalent to standard quantum mechanics. A more careful statement is that the two theories will always make theExpand
Hermeneutics, underdetermination and quantum mechanics
There exists an essential underdetermination in the interpretation of the formalism of quantum mechanics and this extends even to the question of whether or not physical phenomena at the mostExpand
