Quantum mechanics and its interpretation are connected in a manifold way by the measuring process. The measuring apparatus serve as a means for the verification of the theory and are considered as physical objects also subject to the Jaws of this theory. On the basis of this interrelation some parts of the interpretation can be derived from other parts by means of quantum theory. On the other hand there are interpretations which must be excluded on the basis of the quantum theory of measurement.
