Workshop: Philosophy of Spontaneous Collapse

@alisa.dworsky
@alisa.dworsky

Master in Philosophy

24 Febbraio 2024

The aim of the workshop is to discuss the main philosophical implications of the spontaneous collapse models (SCM) of quantum mechanics. Since they were first proposed in the late '80s, the SCM have been among the most discussed solutions to the measurement problem. In this workshop, some of the main figures in the debate on these models (both physicists such as Bassi and Sudarsky, as well as philosophers like Albert, Allori, Egg, and Maudlin) will discuss the viability, the future prospects, and the ontological consequences of SCM. The workshop is organised within Cristian Mariani SNF Ambizione project 'Quantum Indeterminacy' (grant #208762).
