Essential Ambiguity and Essential Influence: Reading Bohr’s Reply to EPR

  • Arkady Plotnitsky
Part of the Fundamental Theories of Physics book series (FTPH, volume 161)


This chapter offers a detailed reading of Bohr’s reply to EPR, which is one of the most important, and one of the most difficult and controversial of Bohr’s works. The present reading is arguably the first ever at this level of detail; and, in addition to supplementing the analysis given in Chapter 8, it aims to clarify some of the difficulties, acknowledged by Bohr himself, that the article customarily poses for its readers.
