How can quantum mechanics be (i) the fundamental theoretical framework of contemporary physics and (ii) a probability calculus that presupposes the events to which, and on the basis of which, it assigns probabilities? The question is answered without invoking knowledge or observers, by interpreting the necessary distinction between two kinds of physical quantities - unconditionally definite quantities and quantities that have values only if they are measured - as a distinction between the… Expand
Quantum Mechanics, the Manifestation of the Territory, and the Evolution of Maps
Reality is not a territory. Reality is an intrinsically undifferentiated Being that manifests the territory, wherein beings capable of mapping the territory evolve. Once fully evolved, these beingsExpand


Quantum mechanics and the manifestation of the world
Quantum theory’s irreducible empirical core is a probability calculus. While it presupposes the events to which (and on the basis of which) it serves to assign probabilities, and therefore cannotExpand
Quantum Mechanics in a New Light
Although the present paper looks upon the formal apparatus of quantum mechanics as a calculus of correlations, it goes beyond a purely operationalist interpretation. Having established theExpand
Quantum Mechanics and Physical Reality
IN a recent article by A. Einstein, B. Podolsky and N. Rosen, which appeared in the Physical Review of May 15, and was reviewed in NATURE of June 22, the question of the completeness of quantumExpand
The physical motivation for the mathematical formalism of quantum mechanics is made clear and compelling by starting from an obvious fact — essentially, the stability of matter — and inquiring intoExpand
Multiplicity in Everett's interpretation of quantum mechanics
It is concluded that much remains to be done to clarify and specify Everett's approach to quantum mechanics, as the spectrum of opinions on various ontological questions raised byverett's approach is rather large. Expand

Quantum Theory Needs No ‘Interpretation’
Purpose of this article is to stress the fact that Quantum Theory does not need an interpretation other than being an algorithm for computing probabilities associated with macroscopic phenomena andExpand
No Place for Particles in Relativistic Quantum Theories?
David Malament (1996) has recently argued that there can be no relativistic quantum theory of (localizable) particles. We consider and rebut several objections that have been made against theExpand
Why the Laws of Physics Are Just So
Does a world that contains chemistry entail the validity of both the standard model of elementary particle physics and general relativity, at least as effective theories? This article shows that theExpand
Manifesting the Quantum World
In resisting attempts to explain the unity of a whole in terms of a multiplicity of interacting parts, quantum mechanics calls for an explanatory concept that proceeds in the opposite direction: fromExpand
