|Measurements, philosophy: A) the problem of measuring is discussed in the context of interpretations of quantum mechanics. B) the comparison of D. Davidson's attribution of linguistic meanings to measurement is taken up in other theories._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them. Instead, they are intended to give a short introduction to the contributions below. – Lexicon of Arguments. |
Duplication / ratios / knowledge / perception / Poincaré: Assumed, overnight all lengths have doubled - would we notice something? - Poincaré: No - I 102f SchlesingerVsPoincaré: different changes: Gravity: 1/4 as strong as before, density: 1/8, air pressure: 1/8, - mercury thermometer burst - Pendulum: Day length root 2 longer - the speed of light is growing by the same factor (measured by Pendulum) - other clocks: no slower (srping force) - open question: whether the other conservation laws remain constant - I 104 when all the atoms are increased, then the electron has to cope the uphill quantum leap with double the distance and needs a doubled energy expenditure - > huge temperature drop - I 120 hierarchy does not change._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
