# No master (key) No (measurement) problem

@article{Hansen2019NoM, title={No master (key) No (measurement) problem}, author={Arne Hansen and Stefan Wolf}, journal={arXiv: Quantum Physics}, year={2019} }

Can normal science-in the Kuhnian sense-add something substantial to the discussion about the measurement problem? Does an extended Wigner's-friend Gedankenexperiment illustrate new issues? Or a new quality of known issues? Are we led to new interpretations, new perspectives, or do we iterate the previously known? The recent debate does, as we argue, neither constitute a turning point in the discussion about the measurement problem nor fundamentally challenge the legitimacy of quantum mechanics…

The Measurement Problem Is the "Measurement" Problem

The term "measurement" in quantum theory (as well as in other physical theories) is ambiguous: It is used to describe both an experience - e.g., an observation in an experiment - and an interaction…
