Quantum metaphysical indeterminacy and the ontological foundations of orthodoxy.

What Ontology for Relational Quantum Mechanics? 1

In this paper, we evaluate some proposals that can be advanced to clarify the ontological consequences of Relational Quantum Mechanics. We first focus on priority monism and ontic structural realism

The Bundle Theory Approach to Relational Quantum Mechanics

TLDR
A new metaphysical interpretation of Relational Quantum Mechanics (RQM) in terms of mereological bundle theory is provided, claiming that a physical system in RQM can be defined as a mereological fusion of properties whose values may vary for different observers.

Assessing relational quantum mechanics

Relational Quantum Mechanics (RQM) is an interpretation of quantum theory based on the idea of abolishing the notion of absolute states of systems, in favor of states of systems relative to other

The Relational Interpretation of Quantum Physics

The relational interpretation (or RQM, for Relational Quantum Mechanics) solves the measurement problem by considering an ontology of sparse relative events, or facts. Events are realized in

The Relational Interpretation

The relational interpretation (or RQM, for Relational Quantum Mechanics) solves the measurement problem by considering an ontology of sparse relative facts. Facts are realized in interactions between

Yet again, quantum indeterminacy is not worldly indecision

It has been argued that non-relativistic quantum mechanics is the best hunting ground for genuine examples of metaphysical indeterminacy. Approaches to metaphysical indeterminacy can be divided into

Lack of Value Definiteness in Quantum Gravity

In this paper we consider the observables describing fundamental spatiotemporal properties and relations in the context of Quantum Gravity (QG). As we will show, in both Loop Quantum Gravity and in

Quantum Mechanics and Metaphysical Indeterminacy

There has been recent interest in formulating theories of non-representational indeterminacy. The aim of this paper is to clarify the relevance of quantum mechanics to this project.

Against Quantum Indeterminacy

A growing literature is premised on the claim that quantum mechanics provides evidence for metaphysical indeterminacy. But does it? None of the currently fashionable realist interpretations involve

Rovelli’s relational quantum mechanics, anti-monism and quantum becoming

In this paper I present and defend Rovelli's relation quantum mechanics (RQM) from some foreseeable objections, so as to clarify its philosophical implications vis a vis rival interpretations. In

Open Problems in Relational Quantum Mechanics

TLDR
It is shown that it is far from clear what a relativization of states to observers exactly achieves and in what sense such an approach really advances the authors' understanding of the peculiar features of quantum phenomena, and it is argued that the claim that RQM is able to preserve locality is at best dubious.

The EPR Argument in a Relational Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics

It is shown that in the Rovelli relational interpretation of quantum mechanics, in which the notion of absolute or observer independent state is rejected, the conclusion of the ordinary EPR argument

Quantum metaphysical indeterminacy

On a wide variety of presently live interpretations, quantum mechanics violates the classical supposition of ‘value definiteness’, according to which the properties (‘observables’) of a given

METAPHYSICAL INDETERMINACY, PROPERTIES, AND QUANTUM THEORY

It has frequently been suggested that quantum mechanics may provide a genuine case of ontic vagueness or metaphysical indeterminacy. However, discussions of quantum theory in the vagueness literature

I begin by examining the question of the quantum limits of knowledge by briefly presenting the constraints of the theory that derive from its mathematical structure (in particular the no-go theorems

Relational EPR

TLDR
It is argued that these EPR-type correlations do not entail any form of “non-locality”, when viewed in the context of this interpretation of quantum mechanics, and the abandonment of strict Einstein realism implied by the relational stance permits to reconcile quantum mechanics.
