Please provide brief answers to the following:


1) Describe classical reality as understood by a physicist in the latter part of the 19th century (i.e., the pre-quantum era).


2) Describe two experiments which seem to be at odds with the classical view of reality.


3) The so-called Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics (Nick Herbert's Quantum Reality #1 and #2) is often described as an anti-realism position.  What is your understanding of this interpretation?



Everyone also needs to send me a specific question you had about the reading.
