Muitos mundos e a interpretação ondulatória: revendo a conexão à luz da filosofia Schorödingeriana
This paper presents Erwin Schrödinger’s Wave Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics, with the main goal of comparing it to the so called Many Worlds Interpretation, of which Bryce DeWitt is the most important figure. It is commonly said that DeWitt’s and Everett’s Interpretations are equivalent, and both would have been inspired by Schrödinger’s wave-like approach. This paper claims those stances to be superficial, requiring a more detailed exam of the philosophical grounds held by the authors, besides other distinguishing details. A connexion may be established concerning the rejection of the quantum collapse, although one should be careful about the meaning of the term in each standpoint. This article also shows the balance of Schrödinger’s Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics in regard to his philosophy in a wider sense. Finally, it concludes that detaching Schrödinger’s interpretation from Many Worlds is more coherent with his philosophical assumptions; he conceives a single world containing infinite possibilities.
