The most subject of this publication is the concept that quantum mechanics is legitimate not just for microscopic items but in addition for the macroscopic equipment used for quantum mechanical measurements. the writer demonstrates the intimate family members that exist among quantum mechanics and its interpretation that are brought about by way of the quantum mechanical dimension method. for that reason, the ebook is worried either with the philosophical, metatheoretical difficulties of interpretations and with the extra formal difficulties of quantum item idea. the implications of this strategy grow to be partially very promising and partially particularly disappointing. at the one hand, it really is attainable to offer a rigorous justification of a few vital components of interpretation, resembling chance, by way of item conception. nevertheless, the matter of the objectification of size effects ends up in inconsistencies which can't be resolved in an seen method. This open challenge has far-reaching outcomes for the potential for recognising an goal truth in physics.
