Abstract

The difference between quantum entities and classical entities can be noticed in many different ways. Quantum logic has been profoundly interested in analyzing this difference and trying to understand it. Our aim is to represent a macroscopic classical mechanistic laboratory situation and to show that this situation entails a nonclassical logical structure. The example was presented some time ago by one of us, showing it to have a quantum probability model, and analyzing the effect of this on a possible understanding of the origin of quantum probabilities. In this paper we make a similar attempt, but now concentrate on the logical aspects of the example.
