Title: David Glick - HPS Seminar Series
QBism and the Limits of Scientific Realism

QBism (formerly “Quantum Bayesianism") is an agent-centered interpretation  
of quantum theory. It rejects the notion that quantum theory provides a  
God's eye description of reality and claims instead that it imposes  
constraints on agents' subjective degrees of belief. QBism's emphasis on  
subjective belief has led critics to dismiss it as antirealism or  
instrumentalism, or even, idealism or solipsism. The aim of this talk is to  
consider the relation of QBism to scientific realism. I argue that while  
QBism is an unhappy fit with a standard way of thinking about realism, an  
alternative conception I call "perspectival normative realism" may allow  
for a reconciliation.
