J. S. Bell's classic 1966 review paper on the foundations of quantum mechanics led directly to the Bell nonlocality theorem. It is not widely appreciated that the review paper contained the basic ingredients needed for a nonlocality result which holds in certain situations where the Bell inequality is not violated. We present in this paper a systematic formulation and evaluation of an argument due to Stairs in 1983, which establishes a nonlocality result based on the Bell-Kochen-Specker… 
Schrödinger’s Paradox and Nonlocality
In the previous chapter, we reviewed the Einstein–Podolsky–Rosen paradox and Bell’s Theorem. EPR is a very powerful result, and when its logical content is distilled, this famous analysis leads to a
Nonlocality and Gleason's lemma. Part 2. Stochastic theories
I derive a Gleason-type contradiction from assumptions weaker than those needed to reach a Bell inequality. By establishing the inconsistency between local realism and QM's perfect EPR-type
The Kochen-Specker theorem and Bell's theorem: An algebraic approach
In this paper we present a systematic formulation of some recent results concerning the algebraic demonstration of the two major no-hidden-variables theorems for N spin-1/2 particles. We derive
Bell on Bell's theorem: The changing face of nonlocality
Between 1964 and 1990, the notion of nonlocality in Bell's papers underwent a profound change as his nonlocality theorem gradually became detached from quantum mechanics, and referred to wider
Leggett ’ s theorem without inequalities ∗
We prove a no-go theorem for a class of hidden variables theories that satisfy parameter independence. Specifically, we show that, assuming two conditions, there are no non-trivial hidden variables
A Flea on Schrödinger ’ s Cat N . P . (
We propose a technical reformulation of the measurement problem of quantum mechanics, which is based on the postulate that the final state of a measurement is classical; this accords with

Schrödinger’s Paradox and Proofs of Nonlocality Using Only Perfect Correlations
We discuss proofs of nonlocality based on a generalization by Erwin Schrodinger of the argument of Einstein, Podolsky and Rosen. These proofs do not appeal in any way to Bell's inequalities. Indeed,
