Carlo Rovelli (France): The Relational interpretation of Quantum Mechanics

Donnerstag, 07. Juni 2018 16:00

Ort: Ludwig-Boltzmann-Hörsaal, Boltzmanngasse 5, EG


I present in detail the Relational interpretation of quantum mechanics.  This is a refinement of the Copenhagen interpretation, meant to eliminate its operational and antropocentric aspects.  I discuss specifically the sense in which quantum mechanics questions realism, distinguishing different forms of realism.  I give a general discussion of the relation between different interpretations of quantum mechanics and their relation to wider philosophical orientations.

This talk is part of a Lecture series on foundations of physics: scientific realism (260020 VO, 2.5 ECTS, organised by the students of natural science of the University of Vienna (see
