Abstract

This and the following section are from my essay “Probability and Quantum Mechanics” (1973). Imre Lakatos had read this work in the last years of his life, when he was a member of the Scientific Council of the Max Planck-Institute in Starnberg. He viewed it as an example of a “rational reconstruction” and had it published in the British Journal for the Philosophy of Science, 24, 321–337. I dedicate these sections to his memory.
