Otávio Bueno (University of Miami): “Weyl, Identity, Indiscernibility”

20 November, 5:15 pm6:45 pm
LAK 2.06, Lakatos Building
London, WC2A 2AE United Kingdom
+ Google Map

Abstract: As part of his attempt to interpret the foundations of non-relativist quantum mechanics, Hermann Weyl developed a suggestive technique to accommodate aggregates of quantum particles while taking into account these particles’ apparent lack of identity (see Weyl , pp. 237-252, and Weyl ). The technique is suggestive in that it attempts to make sense of the putative restrictions on…

Alisa Bokulich (Boston University): “Losing Sight of the Forest for the Ψ: A Call for a Successor to the Realism Question”

27 November, 5:15 pm6:45 pm
LAK 2.06, Lakatos Building
London, WC2A 2AE United Kingdom

Abstract: Traditionally the realist project in quantum theory has taken one of two forms: First, defending one of many different possible interpretations of quantum theory as the one true depiction of reality. Second, defending what has been termed wavefunction realism, according to which ordinary space is an illusion and we in fact live in a 3N-dimensional configuration space, where N…
