Realismo e metaf\'isica na mec\^anica qu\^antica

According to scientific realism, science gives us an approximately true description of what the world is like. But what does it mean? In this chapter, we focus on the ontological and metaphysical

A (META)METAFÍSICA DA CIÊNCIA: O CASO DA MECÂNICA QUÂNTICA NÃO RELATIVISTA

RESUMO Tradicionalmente, ser realista sobre algo significa crer na existência independente desse algo. Em termos ontológicos, isto é, acerca do que há, o realismo científico pode ser entendido como

Quantum Mechanics Beyond Syntax and Semantics

The question “what is an interpretation?” is often intertwined with the perhaps even harder question “what is a scientific theory?”. Given this proximity, we try to clarify the first question to

Against ‘Interpretation’: Quantum Mechanics Beyond Syntax and Semantics

It is argued that the traditional notion of “interpretation” within the syntax/semantic debate is not the same as that of the debate concerning the interpretation of quantum mechanics, and a different one with an emphasis on pure formalism is proposed.

The Power of Inconsistency in Anti-Realist Realisms about Quantum Mechanics (Or: Lessons on How to Capture and Defeat Smoky Dragons)

In this work we argue that the power and effectiveness of the Bohrian approach to quantum mechanics is grounded on an inconsistent form of anti-realist realism which is responsible not only for the

Mythical Thought in Bohr's Anti-Realist Realism (Or: Lessons on How to Capture and Defeat Smoky Dragons)

In this work we argue that the power and effectiveness of the Bohrian approach to quantum mechanics is essentially grounded on an inconsistent form of anti-realist realism which supports not only the

Quantum Theory Needs No ‘Interpretation’ But ‘Theoretical Formal-Conceptual Unity’(Or: Escaping Adán Cabello’s “Map of Madness” With the Help of David Deutsch’s Explanations)

In the year 2000, in a paper titled Quantum Theory Needs No ‘Interpretation’, Chris Fuchs and Asher Peres presented a series of instrumentalist arguments against the role played by ‘interpretations’

Is Coronavirus an object? Metametaphysics meets medical sciences

In ontological terms, what can we learn from the current state of the art in Epidemiology? Applying the Quinean criterion of ontological commitment, we can learn that there are several fundamental
