Paper Title
The PBR Theorem and its Implications

The PBR theorem (published in 2012) purports to undermine epistemic interpretations of the quantum state (wave function) and support a realist interpretation thereof. The aim of this paper is to show that the theorem can actually be read as pointing to the opposite conclusion, that is, as a critique of the realist interpretation of the quantum state. The paper represents a radical epistemic interpretation that is not undermined by the theorem and is, arguably, strengthened by it. Index Terms - PBR Theorem, Epistemic Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics
