Abstract

AH, YES, THE MEASUREMENT PROBLEM! No other subject has served so A reliably as a catalyst for foundational debates. Every interpretation of quantum theory owes its existence to somebody making a new assault on this perennial problem. And then there are those who dismiss concerns about the measurement problem with a deflating “What measurement problem?” (or go as far as to bluntly suggest that the problem merely “refers to a set of people”). But even they must make their claim in the context of a particular interpretation if they are to legitimately justify their a priori dismissal. And so every foundationalist will have to grapple with the measurement problem one way or the other and will at some point be called to testify.
