Title: Wave Function Realism in a Relativistic Setting

Abstract: This talk will consider strategies for extending the wave function realist interpretation of quantum mechanics to the case of relativistic quantum theories, responding to the arguments of Wallace and Timpson (2010) and Myrvold (2015) that this cannot be done.

There will be a dinner after the talk. If you are interested, please send an email with “Dinner” in the heading to nyphilsci@gmail.com (please note that all are welcome, but only the speaker’s dinner will be covered). If you have any other questions, please email eddy.chen@rutgers.edu
