Quantum Probability and the Foundations of Quantum Theory

In Roger Cooke & Domenico Costantini (eds.), Boston Studies in the Philosophy of Science. Springer Verlag. pp. 119-147 (1990)


The point of view advocated, in the last ten years, by quantum probability about the foundations of quantum mechanics, is based on the investigation of the mathematical consequences of a deep and elementary idea developed by the founding fathers of quantum mechanics and accepted nowadays as a truism by most physicists, namely: one should be careful when applying the rules derived from the experience of macroscopic physics to experiments which are mutually incompatible in the sense of quantum mechanics.
