# The Linguistic Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics

@article{Ishikawa2012TheLI, title={The Linguistic Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics}, author={Shiro Ishikawa}, journal={arXiv: History and Philosophy of Physics}, year={2012} }

About twenty years ago, we proposed the mathematical formulation of Heisenberg's uncertainty principle, and further, we concluded that Heisenberg's uncertainty principle and EPR-paradox are not contradictory. This is true, however we now think that we should have argued about it under a certain firm interpretation of quantum mechanics. Recently we proposed the linguistic quantum interpretation (called quantum and classical measurement theory), which was characterized as a kind of metaphysical…

Zeno's Paradoxes in the Mechanical World View

- Philosophy

There is a very reason to consider that to solve Zeno's paradoxes is to propose the theory of mechanical world view. We believe that this is not only our opinion but also most philosophers' opinion.…

Philosophy of Science for Scientists: The Probabilistic Interpretation of Science

What is Statistics?; The Answer by Quantum Language

- Physics
- 2012

It is believed that the quantum lingistic formulation of statistics gives an answer to the question: "What is statistics?", which will be done through the studies of inference interval, statistical hypothesis testing, Fisher maximum likelihood method, Bayes method and regression analysis in meaurement theory.

A New Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics

This work proposes a new interpretation of measurement theory, which is the linguistic aspect (or, the mathematical generalization) of quantum mechanics, and shows that Bell’s inequality is broken even in classical systems.

Can Quantum-Mechanical Description of Physical Reality Be Considered Complete?

- Philosophy
- 1935

Consideration of the problem of making predictions concerning a system on the basis of measurements made on another system that had previously interacted with it leads to the result that one is led to conclude that the description of reality as given by a wave function is not complete.
