Abstract

It has been recently argued that the measurement problem of standard quantum mechanics (SQM) dissolves if we accept Humeanism about laws of nature. In this paper, I argue that this new analysis of the measurement problem is seriously flawed, and a more complete analysis does not support the conclusion.
