Does the Minimal Statistical Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics Resolve the Measurement Problem?

Methodology and Science 8:84-101 (1975)
Abstract
It is argued that the so-called minimal statistical interpretation of quantum mechanics does not completely resolve the measurement problem in that this view is unable to show that quantjum mechanics can dispense with classical physics when it comes to a treatment of the measuring interaction. It is suggested that the view that quantum mechanics applies to individual systems should not be too hastily abandoned, in that this view gives perhaps the best hope of leading to a version of quantum mechanics which does provide a complete solution to the measurement problem.
