The Copenhagen Interpretation

Prof. Don Howard
University of Notre Dame

The term 'Copenhagen interpretation' has become entrenched in the later twentieth century physics and philosophy of physics literature, denoting a cluster of ideas associated, rightly or wrongly, with leading thinkers centered around Niels Bohr and Bohr’s Institute in Copenhagen. In my talk, I will show that there is no unitary Copenhagen interpretation and disentangle the various ideas that too often are conflated under this one, misleading name.
