Philosophy and Quantum Mechanics

Abstract
This paper discusses aspects of quantum mechanics that are of interest to non-scientists, but seem to be widely misunderstood. The Uncertainty Principle, the Dual Slit experiment and the Observer Effect are briefly discussed, as are the standard and alternative interpretations of quantum mechanics. Two thought experiments are considered: Schrodinger's Cat, and the Light Switch.
