The EPR experiment is investigated within the abstract language of relativistic quantum physics (relativistic quantum logic). First we show that the principles of reality (R) and locality (L) contradict the validity principle (Q) of quantum physics. A reformulation of this argument is then given in terms of relativistic quantum logic which is based on the principlesR andQ. It is shown that the principleL must be replaced by a convenient relaxation ¯L, by which the contradiction can be eliminated. On the other hand this weak locality principle ¯L does not contradict Einstein causality and is thus in accordance with special relativity.
