Foundations of Quantum Mechanics and Quantum Information Theory: A Workshop with Jeffrey Bub (20 June 2018)

The foundations of quantum mechanics have long been a focus of philosophical interest, from both philosophers of science and physicists: what is the best resolution of the so-called “measurement problem”? What is the nature and status of the quantum correlations? And how best do we understand the differences between quantum and classical mechanics? With Jeffrey Bub, whose recent book Bananaworld explores quantum foundations from an information-theoretic perspective, this workshop will examine such conceptual and philosophical issues.
