**A Strict Epistemic Approach to Physics**

by

**Per Ã–stborn**-

**arXiv**

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.
