  1. Quantum Mechanics' and 'Scientific Explanation 'An Explanatory Strategy Aiming at Providing 'Understanding'.Pandora Hadzidaki - 2008 - Science & Education 17 (1):49-73.
    Empirical studies persistently indicate that the usual explanatory strategies used in quantum mechanics (QM) instruction fail, in general, to yield understanding. In this study we propose an instructional intervention, which (a) incorporates into its subject matter a critical comparison of QM scientific content with the fundamental epistemological and ontological commitments of the prominent philosophical theories of explanation - a weak form of which we meet in QM teaching; (b) illuminates the reasons of their failure; and (c) implements an explanatory strategy (...)

    In this paper, we present a multi-dimensional study concerning Heisenberg's 'gamma-ray microscope', a thought experiment which is unbreakably connected with the historical development of quantum mechanics (QM), and also with the most disputed interpretations of quantum theory. In this study,we investigate: (a) how philosophers of science read and explicate the function of thought experimentation in physical science; (b) in the light of relevant philosophical theories, we examine the complicated epistemological questions raised by the 'gamma-ray microscope' during the birth process of (...)
