Quantum metaphysics

What is the reality described by quantum mechanics?

Recently, I have been defending the many worlds interpretation answer to this question here.

I have also challenged the GRW/CSL wave-function collapse answer:

2015. ‘Four Tails Problems for Dynamical Collapse Theories’, Studies in the History & Philosophy of Modern Physics 49: 10-18.

I am collaborating with David Chalmers on alternative accounts of what brings about wave-function collapse.

I have used quantum entanglement to criticize the philosophical concept of intrinsicness:

2016. ‘Tests for Intrinsicness Tested’, Philosophical Studies 173: 2935-2950 (with René van Woudenberg).
