**A Strict Epistemic Approach to Physics**

by Per Ã–stborn

**Publisher**: arXiv 2016**Number of pages**: 543

**Description**:

Here, we derive the formalism of QM from well-motivated epistemic principles. A key assumption is that in a proper physical theory, the introduction of entities or distinctions that are unknowable in principle is in conflict with the theory.
