Abstract

What belongs to quantum theory is no more than what is needed for its derivation. Keeping to this maxim, we record a paradigmatic shift in the foundations of quantum mechanics, where the focus has recently moved from interpreting to reconstructing quantum theory. We present a quantum logical derivation based on Rovelli's information-theoretic axioms. Its strengths and weaknesses will be studied in the light of recent developments, focusing on the subsystems rule, continuity assumptions, and the definition of observer.
