Abstract NoteOffers an exploration of the relationships between epistemology and probability in the work of Niels Bohr, Werner Heisenberg, and Erwin Schrodinger; in quantum mechanics; and in modern physics. This book considers the implications of these relationships and of quantum theory for our understanding of the nature of thinking and knowledge in general
Contents NoteEpistemology and probability in quantum theory : physics, mathematics, and philosophy -- Quantum phenomena and the double-slit experiment -- Heisenberg's revolutions : new kinematics, new mathematics, and new philosophy -- From geometry to algebra in physics, with Heisenberg -- Schr�odinger's waves : propagation and probability -- Bohr's Como argument : complementarity and the problem of causality -- From Como to Copenhagen : renunciations -- Can quantum-mechanical description of physical reality be considered both complete and local? -- Essential ambiguity and essential influence : reading Bohr's reply to EPR -- Mysteries without mysticism, correlations without correlata, epistemology without ontology, and probability without causality -- "The mere touch of cold philosophy."
