PHIL 472  Advanced Topics in the Philosophy of                    3 credits
          Science Philosophy of Quantum Mechanics           

          Grade  Method: REG/P-F/AUD  Quantum theory
          is  a  very  successful  theory,  Yet, 100
          years   after   its   birth  it  is  still
          difficult  to make good sense of the exact
          nature  of the quantum world. The standard
          way   of   interpreting   the   mainstream
          quantum-mechanical, mathematical formalism
          is   riddled  with  various  difficulties.
          There  are  other  ways to  interpret this
          formalism  and there are other theories of
          the  quantum realm, but  they also involve
          various  puzzles. In the  course, we shall
          focus  on studying these issues. Required:
          some background in physics and philosophy.
