two days of history and epistemology of the foundations of Quantum Mechanics.
On the occasion of the publication of
The Oxford Handbook of the History of Quantum Interpretations. Nearly a century after its formulation and despite its unprecedented predictive successes in accounting for physical processes, quantum mechanics is still at the center of a lively debate.In the same spirit as The Oxford handbook of the history of Quantum Interpretations, the two days offer a historical overview of the contrasts that have been at the heart of quantum physics over the past 100 years. Drawing on the extensive expertise of several lecturers working in the fields of physics, history and philosophy. Thus, the objective of these two days is to fuel the ongoing debate on the foundations of quantum mechanics by dealing with the major open questions concerning the interpretations of Quantum Mechanics.
