SummaryThe noncausal structure events demanded by Bell's theorem are shown to follow naturally from a theory of events similar to White-head's. In spite of this noncausal structure on the level of individu al events the macroscopic causality structure observed in Nature at the statistical level holds. Quantum theory itself emerges naturally, along with the basic analyticity properties of theS-matrix.RiassuntoSi mostra che gli eventi di struttura non casuale richiesti dal teorema di Bell seguono… 
Events as fundamental entities in physics
SummaryBergson and Whitehead have proposed a point of view where events rather than particles are fundamental entities. We follow this point of view as developed further by Capek and by Stapp by
Quantum Mechanics in a New Light
Although the present paper looks upon the formal apparatus of quantum mechanics as a calculus of correlations, it goes beyond a purely operationalist interpretation. Having established the
On the hypothesis that quantum mechanics has a nonlocal structure
SummaryThe argument that the violation of Bell’s inequality by quantum systems demonstrates the nonlocal structure of quantum mechanics is examined. It is determined that the inability to derive
Comment on “Nonlocal character of quantum theory,” by Henry P. Stapp [Am. J. Phys. 65 (4), 300–304 (1997)]
A 1997 paper by Henry Stapp attempts to achieve a definitive argument for his long-sustained thesis that quantum mechanics implies a nonlocality inconsistent with the locality of relativity theory.
Bell’s Nonlocality Can be Detected by the Violation of Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen Steering Inequality
This work proposes another curious quantum phenomenon: Bell nonlocal states can be constructed from some steerable states, and offers a distinctive way to study Bell’s nonlocality without Bell”s inequality but with steering inequality, which may avoid locality loophole in Bell“s tests and make Bell‘s nonLocality easier for demonstration.

Event enhanced and piecewise deterministic quantum theory or the right jump at the right place
The purpose of Event Enhanced Quantum Theory (EEQT) is to allow for a precise meaning to the concepts of “event”, “experiment” and “measurement” Within EEQT one obtains not only Lionville equations
Why “ noncommutative common causes ” don ’ t explain anything A comment on Gábor Hofer-Szabó ’ s Noncommutative causality in algebraic quantum field theory
In my commentary, I will argue that the conclusions drawn in the paper Noncommutative causality in algebraic quantum field theory1 by Gábor Hofer-Szabó are incorrect. As proven by J.S. Bell, a local
Bell Locality and the Nonlocal Character of Nature
AbstractIt is demonstrated that hidden variables of a certain type follow logically from a certain local causality requirement (“Bell Locality”) and the empirically well-supported predictions of
Time symmetry and the Einstein paradox
SummaryThe characteristic difference between the paleoquantal calculation (addition of partial probabilities) and the neoquantal one (addition of partial amplitudes) for the correlation of photon


On the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen paradox
THE paradox of Einstein, Podolsky and Rosen [1] was advanced as an argument that quantum mechanics could not be a complete theory but should be supplemented by additional variables. These additional
The Copenhagen Interpretation
Scientists of the late 1920s, led by Bohr and Heisenberg, proposed a conception of nature radically different from that of their predecessors. The new conception, which grew out of efforts to
The usual interpretation of quantum theory is clouded by the following points. (1) Invalid classical concepts are ascribed fundamental status. (2) The process of measurement is not describable within
