We give an introduction to the QBist interpretation of quantum mechanics, which removes the paradoxes, conundra, and pseudo-problems that have plagued quantum foundations for the past nine decades. As an example, we show in detail how this interpretation eliminates “quantum nonlocality.”

Ideas Abandoned en Route to QBism
The interpretation of quantum mechanics known as QBism developed out of efforts to understand the probabilities arising in quantum physics as Bayesian in character. But this development was neither
Quantum mechanics: knocking at the gates of mathematical foundations
Quantum characteristics like superposition, entanglement, wave-particle duality, nonlocality, contextuality are difficult to reconcile with our everyday intuition. I survey some aspects of quantum
QBism, Quantum Nonlocality, and the Objective Paradox
The Quantum-Bayesian interpretation of quantum theory claims to eliminate the question of quantum nonlocality. This claim is not justified, because the question of non-locality does not arise due to
QBism, Quantum Nonlocality, and the Objective Paradox
The Quantum-Bayesian interpretation of quantum theory claims to eliminate the question of quantum nonlocality. This claim is not justified, because the question of non-locality does not arise due to
Quantum Mechanics as Naturalized Time
We bring together two topics (quantum mechanics and time passage) with the goal of clarifying questions about each. Specifically, we claim that the formalism of quantum mechanics provides an answer
Time, chance and quantum theory
I propose an understanding of Everett and Wheeler's relative-state interpretation of quantum mechanics, which restores the feature of indeterminism to the theory. This incorporates a theory of
Introduction to Quantum Foundations
This section introduces a few concepts that are central not just to quantum foundational research, but also for practical applications in quantum information theory.
On the falsification of the pilot-wave interpretation of quantum mechanics
Quantum mechanics has lacked a widely recognized interpretation since its birth. Many interpretations are under consideration because they are difficult to disprove experimentally. In this paper, we
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) hidden

Quantum theory is a well-defined local theory with a clear interpretation. No “measurement problem” or any other foundational matters are waiting to be settled.
