Modal Interpretation of Repeated Measurement: A Rejoinder to Leeds and Healey

Philosophy of Science 64 (4):669 - 676 (1997)
Abstract
A recent article (Leeds and Healey 1996) argues that the modal interpretation (Copenhagen variant) of quantum mechanics does not do justice to immediately repeated non-disturbing measurements. This objection has been raised before, but the article presents it in a new, detailed, precise form. I show that the objection is mistaken.
