  5. James H. McGrath (1986). Quantum Disjunctive Facts. PSA: Proceedings of the Biennial Meeting of the Philosophy of Science Association 1986:76 - 86.
    A reformulation of the Kochen and Specker Theorem is used to show how quantum disjunctive facts have presented an insurmountable obstacle to mainstream attempts to motivate quantum logic. The failure of these attempts represents a progressive retrenchment of the program of connecting quantum logic to quantum theory. However, a recent program proposed by Allen Stairs gives those who embrace a realist ontology of quantum "facts" reason to believe quantum logic may yet be read off quantum theory.

  7. James H. McGrath (1980). A Formal Statement of Schrodinger's Cat Paradox. PSA: Proceedings of the Biennial Meeting of the Philosophy of Science Association 1980:251 - 263.
    Using formal techniques, Schrodinger's 1935 cat argument is reproduced. Assumptions of the argument are made explicit as axioms and rules of inference; from these a contradiction is derived. The formal statement is then used to elucidate several crucial distinctions, to reject several commonly proposed resolutions, and to sketch an Einsteinian perspective for the argument.

    Putnam and others have argued that an examination of structures arising in quantum mechanics can lead to a non-classical propositional logic, quantum logic. In this paper it is argued that the procedure by which quantum logic is said to be discovered, a process called reading off, is fundamentally flawed. A parody fable shows that reading off leads to absurd consequences. The fable also leads one to cast doubt on the following claims central to the quantum logic program: (i) logic can (...)
