Blurb/Shorttext:
Quantum mechanics is as successful a scientific theory as has ever been produced, but there is no real agreement as to what it means. Much ink has been spilled in efforts to give a workable interpretation to the formalism, and there appears to be no end in sight to this program. John von Neumann's "Catastrophe of Infinite Regress" drove some of the philosophical work of Werner Heisenberg, John Wheeler, and von Neumann himself, and concern with the catastrophe manifested itself in each man's work as an attempt to find a mechanism of quantum mechanical collapse. This work examines each man's solution to the problem and concludes that the way out of the trap is to deny that the regress is catastrophic -- the state of a quantum system is seen as analogous to time intervals in that both are relative to the reference frame of observers.
