In a previous paper, we proposed assigning asthe value of a physical quantity in quantum theory acertain kind of set (a sieve) of quantities that arefunctions of the given quantity. The motivation was in part physical — such a valuationilluminates the Kochen–Specker theorem — andin part mathematical — the valuation arisesnaturally in the topos theory of presheaves. This paperdiscusses the conceptual aspects of this proposal. We also undertake two othertasks. First, we explain how the proposed… Expand
