Saunders and Wallace on Everett and Lewis

Publication Date
  • Quantum Mechanics


Simon Saunders and David Wallace are attempting to use a modified form of David Lewis's analysis of personal fission to support the thought that prior to undergoing Everett branching an informed subject can be uncertain about which outcome s/he will observe. I argue that the seductive appeal of the idea is an illusion arising out of failure to distinguish between the provenance and reference of the relevant observers’ utterances.
