Abstract

We present an account of idealization in quantum mechanics from the perspective of the semantic approach to theories. Using the notions of “partial structures” and “partial isomorphism” we reject the dichotomy between the “theoretical” and the “phenomenological” defended by Cartwright, for example, and defend a unitary account of theories and models which offers a framework for understanding how the models of quantum mechanics relate to systems in the world. As a case study we take the calculation of atomic structure by means of the self-consistent field approach and our general conclusion is that, contrary to the claims of recent commentators, the models of quantum chemistry count as “quantum mechanical” on the twin grounds that they can be related via partial isomorphisms to models satisfying Schrödinger's equation and that they incorporate Pauli's Exclusion Principle.

Islands of the Moral and Emotional Imagination: A Journey to Your True Self is for all those who are on a search for inspiration in their life. If one is dwelling in fear, they may choose not to take this new path. When confronted with the unknown, fear can discourage a chance to seek and find courage, truth, and faith, hidden within.

Let us take you on a journey to the islands. Step into our currach weaving through the waves. You will find comfort when one of the islands becomes visible through the mist. You will be introduced to our friends as we step off on the islands to explore a wonder of mystery awaiting our curious hearts and minds. We will be delighted with new aesthetic experiences, growing closer in wisdom of the divine imagination.

Let us weave the threads from life’s memories into a tapestry of ideas and possibilities. Breath in and out each memory that surfaces from the deep shadowed regions of your mind, heart, and soul. Feel the toss of your life’s waves, as unexplained storms are remembered, always knowing that an island of hope will appear on your soul’s horizon.
