      Underdetermination does not apply to weak theories, for instance, if the number of observational categoricals implied by a theory is finite then we can, in principle, replace the original formulation with one consisting of the finite conjunction of all the implied observational categoricals and then we have a unique theory with no non-observational statements about the world—what Quine calls a tight fit.

      Of course, following Reichenbach’s discussion of metrical coordinative definitions, it has been generally agreed that there is a certain conventionality in space time theories and Lyre and Eynck point out that the theories they discuss “lie somewhere on a continuum with the doctrines of conventionalism and underdetermination at its two extremes”.

      Leaving aside many nuances, the “only if” part is replaced by the rule that when a quantum (sub)system is described by a reduced density operator ρ, the observables determinate on that (sub)system are those that commute with all of the projectors onto an eigenbasis of ρ.

      For if the Hamiltonian for the system is (essentially) self-adjoint then the time evolute of every vector in the Hilbert space—regardless of whether or not it has components in different superselection sectors—is uniquely defined for all time; and if the Hamiltonian is not (essentially) self-adjoint there is no quantum dynamics—unless the boundary conditions for the problem pick out a particular self-adjoint extension, reverting to the previous case.

      Crowther 2006 ) that my claim that T1’s coherence is bought at the price of inadequacies in content attribution begs the question against the T1 theorist by simply assuming that T1’s content must be of a kind whose attribution is not answerable to facts about the subject’s experience—but is answerable instead to facts that depend on the theorist’s explanatorily successful descriptions.

      One possible way out would be to appeal to some suitable form of externalist epistemology—based e. g. on facts about reliable empirical connections between the creatures’ responsive dispositions and the content of their experiences—to try to explain just how the content of perceptual experiences informs these subjects’ intentional behaviour.

      42 But perhaps a better strategy for the advocate of the algebraic approach is not to be defensive but to take the offensive and declare victory: declare that the unitary inequivalence of representations with different mass values proves that there is a superselection rule for mass in the case of a Klein–Gordon field; and more generally, claim that the superiority of the algebraic approach is manifested in the fact that it is able to reveal superselection rules that are not captured—at least not in any obvious way—by traditional methods which emphasize group-theoretic/symmetry considerations.

      But (the argument would go) if unitarily inequivalent representations are going to contribute to a genuine superselection rule—even a weak one—they must be distinguished by some feature that makes for a real physical difference, and this difference can be expected to provide a basis for regarding all of the E j as in-principle measurable and, thus, elements of the observable algebra.

      Physics differs from metaphysics by confining itself to articulating the kinematical and dynamical possibility structures for our world, and among the most important questions about these structures for quantum physics is whether superselection rules apply.

      2006 ) or the implications of superselection rules for quantum information theory where it seems that the degree of entanglement is constrained by superselection rules (see Bartlett and Wiseman 2003 ) and that the standard notion of quantum nonlocality has to be modified when superselection rules are present (see Verstraete and Cirac 2003 ).

      The details are too technical to review here, but they hold more than a little physical interest since they are crucial in deciding whether there can be paraparticles which do not obey either Fermi or bosonic statistics.

      In counterfactual approaches, forcing comes in at two points: tracking the truth puts some stringent constraints on belief (indeed, a much stronger constraint than reliabilism does) and thus avoids their Gettierization, whereas the proviso that such tracking need only be in place in close worlds, takes care of sceptical concerns.

      Indeed, Landsman rejects the modal semantics in favor of the rule that all and only those observables whose operators are self-adjoint and are superselected in the sense that they belong to the center of the von Neumann algebra of observables have definite values.

      From a philosophically neutral position, the mutual translatability of W-logic and FOL = can be taken to show how the content of the identity symbol in first-order logic can be carved up in various ways, and be distributed between quantifiers and variables (as well as, where appropriate, a co-denotation predicate) so as to render ‘=’ superfluous.

      Of course, to guarantee that this trick will always work, the notion of a reference frame must be given an elastic meaning that can be stretched far beyond its standard meaning of an abstract or materially embodied congruence of timelike curves (the worldlines of the points of the frame) with respect to which physical processes can be spatiotemporally located.
