Abstract

Albert and Loewer[1] have recently clarified their earlier objection to the interactive interpretation presented in Healey[2]. They now charge that this interpretation fails to solve a problem of which the measurement problem is but a special case. The general problem is to reconcile quantum mechanics with the prima facie determinateness of such dynamical properties as the positions of macroscopic objects. In response I defend both the preeminent significance of determinate measurement outcomes and the claim that the models of Healey[3] go a long way toward securing their determinateness.
