Abstract

A realist view of the quantum world is given along the lines of Werner Heisenberg’s Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics and set in contrast to that associated with John von Neumann by Henry Stapp. This view is distinguished by, among other elements: (i) the notion of quantum potentia and its actualization which results in classical recorded values of measured quantities, (ii) the grounding of the existence and chancy character of individual measurement events in the plenitude principle as applied to the set of eigenvalues of observables on the space of quantum states, and (iii) the identification of the individuals of the theory by a straightforward individuation principle.
