Quantum Physics and Whitehead's Philosophy a tribute to Abner Shimony
Speaker(s): Shimon Malin
Abstract: After having been a Whiteheadian for decades, Abner, under the influence of Lovejoy’s book, "The Revolt against Dualism,” no longer accepts Whitehead’s philosophy. In this paper I try to challenge this change of heart, as well as suggest a modification of Whitehead’s philosophy that allows for an elegant interpretation of the EPR/Bell correlations.
