Abstract

In his (1996) Willem M. de Muynck takes issue with some arguments I have advanced in Laudisa (1996). He aims to show that my defence of the relevance of the Bell inequalities to the problem of non-locality in quantum mechanics is not well-founded or—at least—is unduly restrictive. Several points in de Muynck's paper deserve discussion, but I would like just to comment on what seem to me the main ones. Accordingly I will focus on: (1) definitions of (non-)locality; (2) non-objectivism, contextualism and the Bell inequalities; (3) causal interpretation of quantum mechanics, explanation and metaphysics; and (4) joint measurements, locality and the Bell inequalities.
