A Strict Epistemic Approach to Physics

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 543

Description:
Here, we derive the formalism of QM from well-motivated epistemic principles. A key assumption is that in a proper physical theory, the introduction of entities or distinctions that are unknowable in principle is in conflict with the theory.
