Quantum Mechanics and Consciousness 2.0 with Mohrhoff

There is a deep connection between consciousness and quantum mechanics, which has been obscured by a wrong interpretation of quantum theory’s mathematical formalism. What needs explaining is (i) why the general theoretical framework of modern physics is a tool for assigning probabilities to possible measurement outcomes on the basis of information provided by actual measurement outcomes, and (ii) why measurement outcomes enjoy the exalted status that they do.

Ulrich Mohrhoff has published numerous papers in Journal of Consciousness Studies, Foundations of Physics, Foundations of Science, International Journal of Quantum Information, etc., as well as a textbook The World According to Quantum Mechanics: Why the Laws of Physics Make Perfect Sense After All (World Scientific, 2nd edition 2018). A member of the Sri Aurobindo Ashram in Pondicherry, he has taught a philosophically oriented course of quantum mechanics at the Sri Aurobindo International Centre of Education.
