Quantum mechanics is an extraordinarily successful scientific theory. It is also completely mad. Although the theory quite obviously works, it leaves us chasing ghosts and phantoms; particles that are waves and waves that are particles; cats that are at once both alive and dead; and lots of seemingly spooky goings-on. But if we're prepared to be a little more specific about what we mean when we talk about 'reality' and a little more circumspect in the way we think a scientific theory might represent such a reality, then all the mystery goes away. This shows that the choice we face is actually a philosophical one. Here, Jim Baggott provides a quick but comprehensive introduction to quantum mechanics for the general reader, and explains what makes this theory so very different from the rest. He also explores the processes involved in developing scientific theories and explains how these lead to different philosophical positions, essential if we are to understand the nature of the great debate between Niels Bohr and Albert Einstein. Moving forwards, Baggott then provides a comprehensive guide to attempts to determine what the theory actually means, from the Copenhagen interpretation to many worlds and the multiverse. Richard Feynman once declared that 'nobody understands quantum mechanics'. This book will tell you why.… (mais)

Baggott fascinatingly reviews and agonizes over the most prominent interpretations of quantum mechanics (IQMs). He doesn't use the term "psi-epistemic", but if he did he would equate it to "anti-realist" (and similarly equate "psi-ontic" to "realist"). I'm not at all sure this is fair, since people like Carlo Rovelli and David Mermin (no fools they) have thoroughly and persuasively argued that their IQMs (the relational and the QBist, respectively) do *not* fail to respect realism just because their role for wavefunctions is abstract rather than physical. But I have no quarrel with Baggott's negative attitudes toward the many-worlds IQM and IQMs that bring in human consciousness.
