are formulated, while the top layer formulates singular causal propositions. The derivative general causal propositions of the middle layer (Part II) are constrained by the metaphysical superstructure of physical theories (i.e. the principles they define) via the probability dependence of events. The probability dependence is derived either by counterfactual analysis or by identification of causal differencemakers. (Woodward’s widely discussed manipulationist account of causation based on… Expand
It's a Matter of Principle. Scientific Explanation in Information-Theoretic Reconstructions of Quantum Theory
The aim of this paper is to explore the ways in which Axiomatic Reconstructions of Quantum Theory in terms of Information-Theoretic principles (ARQITs) can contribute to explaining and understandingExpand

Is QBism a Possible Solution to the Conceptual Problems of Quantum Mechanics
TLDR
This work will examine if QBism's claims are robust and will show that a certain number of issues needs to be clarified in order to get a coherent picture. Expand

The conception of reality in Quantum Mechanics
Disputes on the foundations of Quantum Mechanics often involve the conception of reality, without a clear definition on which aspect of this broad concept of reality one refers. We provide anExpand
Why the Tsirelson Bound? Bub’s Question and Fuchs’ Desideratum
TLDR
It is shown that the quantum correlations and quantum states corresponding to the Bell basis states, which uniquely produce the Tsirelson bound for the Clauser–Horne–Shimony–Holt (CHSH) quantity, can be derived from conservation per no preferred reference frame (NPRF). Expand
Quantum States as Ordinary Information
TLDR
This paper develops the case that there is a plausible underlying reality: one actual spacetime-based history, although with behavior that appears strange when analyzed dynamically (one time-slice at a time), by using a simple model with no dynamical laws. Expand
Using interventions to discover quantum causal structure
It is widely held that it is difficult, if not impossible, to apply causal theory to the domain of quantum mechanics. However, there are several recent scientific explanations that appeal cruciallyExpand
