Short for Quantum Bayesianism, QBism adapts conventional features of quantum mechanics in light of a revised understanding of probability.

Release Date: 1993-07-30
Genre: Science

Anybody who is not shocked by quantum theory has not understood it. Niels Bohr's dictum bears witness to the bewildering impact of quantum theory, flying in the face of classical physics and dramatically transforming scientists' outlook on our relationship with the material world. In this book Paul Davies interviews eight physicists involved in debating and testing the theory, with radically different views of its significance.
