Philosophers Index Abstract

    This is a philosophical assessment of the 'many worlds' or 'many minds' approach to the measurement problem of quantum theory1. It is a sequel to another paper ('Worlds, Minds and Quanta', in Aristotelian Society Supplementary Volume, vol. 69, 19952, pp. 113-158). It takes up topics set aside there: namely the nature of identity through time, and the interpretation of probabilities. I also advertise a version of the approach due to Donald.
