    Hidden Variables and Bell's Theorem in Quantum Mechanics.H. Kummer & R. G. McLean - 1994 - Foundations of Physics 24 (5):739-751.
    In the present paper we give a precise definition of a hidden-variable theory for quantum mechanics, whereby we adopt the weakest possible definition of a hidden-variable theory, which is compatible with the assumption that the bounded observables of a quantum mechanical system are represented by the elements of the real part Ar of a W*-algebra A (of the most general type) and the states are represented by the “normal states” (in the mathematical sense) of A. We then go on to (...)

    A Constructive Approach to the Foundations of Quantum Mechanics.Hans Kummer - 1987 - Foundations of Physics 17 (1):1-62.
    An axiomatic theory is formulated which describes a class of “yes-no” experiments, involving a fixed basic source, a fixed basic detector, and various filters. It is assumed that all filters considered can be constructed from a setP of primitive filters by composition and stochastic selection. Two physically plausible axioms are formulated which allow us to define the concept of asystem in the present context (cf. Definition2.4). To each system we can attach anorder unit module ( $^\circ \hat V, ^\circ \hat (...)

    The Foundation of Quantum Theory and Noncommutative Spectral Theory: Part II. [REVIEW]Hans Kummer - 1991 - Foundations of Physics 21 (10):1183-1236.
    The present paper comprises Sects. 5–8 of a work which proposes an axiomatic approach to quantum mechanics in which the concept of a filter is the central primitive concept. Having layed down the foundations in the first part of this work (which appeared in the last issue of this journal and comprises Sects. 0–4), we arrived at a dual pair 〈Y, M〉 consisting of abase norm space Y and anorder unit space M, being in order and norm duality with respect (...)

    Ways Beyond Appearances.Hans Kummer - 2000 - Journal of Consciousness Studies 7 (1-2):1-2.
    While I admire the reviewed discoveries on the social techniques by which monkeys and apes cope with the conflicts within their communities, I am worried about some of the high-level interpretations given by the authors. In my view the processes reviewed are not ‘building blocks of morality’ but objects of human moral judgements. Their interpretation as ‘shared solutions’ is not supported by a demonstrated ability of nonhuman primates to identify their own acts with those of the other group members. There (...)

    The Foundation of Quantum Theory and Noncommutative Spectral Theory. Part I.Hans Kummer - 1991 - Foundations of Physics 21 (9):1021-1069.
    The present paper is the first part of a work which follows up on H. Kummer: “A constructive approach to the foundations of quantum mechanics,”Found. Phys. 17, 1–63 (1987). In that paper we deduced the JB-algebra structure of the space of observables (=detector space) of quantum mechanics within an axiomatic theory which uses the concept of a filter as primitive under the restrictive assumption that the detector space is finite-dimensional. This additional hypothesis will be dropped in the present paper.It turns (...)
