    Quantum Interpretations and Scientific Explanation in Paradigmatic Quantum Experiments.Reza Maleeh - 2017 - Filozofia Nauki 25 (4).
    In this paper, I discuss two different formalisms of quantum mechanics, i.e. the orthodox and the de Broglie-Bohm formalisms, as explanations of the interference pattern observed in the doubleslit experiment. I evaluate the explanations provided by these two formalisms on the basis of Hempel's DN model of scientific explanation, showing that both formalisms can sufficiently explain the phenomenon. However, once the interpretations associated with the two formalisms come into play, the sufficiency of the DN model's evaluation of the explanations becomes (...)

    Properties Ain't No Puzzle.Borys Jastrzębski - 2017 - Filozofia Nauki 25 (2 (98)):89-101.
    Frege’s Commitment Puzzle concerns inferences from sentences such as “Jupiter has four moons” to sentences such as “The number of moons of Jupiter is four”. Although seemingly about completely different things, such pairs of sentences appear to be truth-conditionally equivalent. In this paper, I make a case against versions of the Puzzle that appeal to properties and propositions. First, I argue that propositions in Frege’s biconditionals serve a specific, non-referring conversational role. Second, I claim that the existence of properties derived (...)
