The impact of quantum mechanics on philosophy

Speaker:Lev Vaidman

The uncertainty principle and Bell-type correlations led to a dramatic change in the
philosophy of science. Today we are ready to accept indeterminism and some kind of action
at a distance. I will argue that this move is not necessary and maybe mistake Accepting
the existence of multiple parallel worlds allows restoring determinism and avoiding action at a
distance. The issue of probability in the many-worlds framework, however, requires
introducing a novel element in science.
