Title: Peter Lewis
Bohmian philosophy of mind?
Bohm’s theory is in many ways an attractive solution to the measurement
problem in quantum mechanics. It provides an intuitive explanation for the
distinctive quantum phenomena of interference and entanglement without the
need for any problematic “collapse” of the wave function. But according to
a recurring line of criticism, Bohm’s theory cannot solve the measurement
problem without an implausible and problematic account of mental awareness.
Furthermore, it has been argued that this account of mental awareness would
in principle allow you to send a faster-than-light signal, directly
contradicting special relativity. I argue that the Bohmian solution to the
measurement problem requires no special account of mental awareness, and
does not permit superluminal signaling. In short, there is no distinctive
Bohmian philosophy of mind.
