I'll check it out.
Like I said, I'm...Cool. I'll check it out.<br /><br />Like I said, I'm certainly not proposing that we revise logic to accommodate quantum weirdness--I want to hold onto monism about classical logic for as long as at all possible--but I think those who do so have a reasonably strong case. Whether it's an ultimately compelling case is, of course, another matter entirely.<br /><br />My point has just been that (a) the standard claim made by (realist) quantum logicians about Distribution doesn't hold up to closer scrutinity (that was the burden of Parts I-III), but that (b) that doesn't mean that quantum weirndess doesn't pose a problem for classical logic. But yes, of course, acknowledging that there is a problem is compatible with the hope be satisfactorily solvable within a classical framework, and that's the outcome I hold out hope for....without, though, actually claiming to have thought enough about it enough or gotten a deep enough understanding of the physics to be 100% confident about the whole thing one way or the other.Benhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/06702722560438833244noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2631035637795172582.post-88723317179979559212010-09-27T12:49:16.595-07:002010-09-27T12:49:16.595-07:00In Good and Real Drescher develops an interesting ...In <i>Good and Real</i> Drescher develops an interesting model of quantum events using Fredkin gates (https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/Fredkin_gate) - basically showing you can get quantum-like effects using classical logic. Which makes me wonder if wanting to modify normal logic is doing riskier logic than one needs to.gwernhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/18349479103216755952noreply@blogger.com
