Journal Article

Published: 01 April 2020
... about Bell inequalities and the development of several realist interpretations. It has been proposed that what is revolutionary about quantum theory and what sets it apart from classical physics are quantum entanglement and quantum nonlocality. For many realists, it seems that quantum theory describes...

.... Very roughly, the new condition I'll propose ( nonlocal closure ) looks not just at which patterns of properties are possible, but at how those patterns are spread through modal space. Here's a first pass at an objection to Merely Modal Plenitude: recall that being blue is among the neutral...

... systems can exhibit the striking features we have come to associate with quantum physics—features such as entanglement, interference, and nonlocality. But as far as physics goes, such systems barely scrape the surface. In particular, they have only a finite number of degrees of freedom , which means...

... theory: even something as simple as shifting from the position to the momentum basis in nonrelativistic quantum mechanics transforms the Schrödinger equation into something explicitly nonlocal). Unfortunately, I don’t think Ney succeeds in giving a clear statement of the high-dimensional space she has...

... is instructive since ordinary tables do not seem vulnerable to the same sort of nonlocal, competi- tive interference. As far as making Abel from Elvis goes, it just doesn’t matter what you do with some other hunk of wood somewhere else in the universe. Make it into a table or don’t. As long as the second...

... something abstract make FACT itself abstract? Does it make it nonlocal? This is not obvious, since despite involving abstract yellowness, FACT is still a matter of a spatiotemporal subject existing here-and-now instantiating a property here-and-now. Similarly, consider the position of FACT in the causal...

... are on an ontological par. Actual existence is a restric- tion of the most general notion of existence to a special case. Analo- gous views can be taken about space and time (Forbes 1989, 34–35). There might be a view that what exists is what exists locally, and nonlocal objects are things that somewhere else enjoy...

... on additional confirmation. Setting aside the possibility of nonlocal evidence (and holding fixed the independence assumptions in the background), the only hope for a single universe is nonqualitative evidence. As we discussed in section 2 , Hacking ( 1987 ) and White ( 2000 ) argued that the key...
