As I have previously explained, one of the main problems of the Copenhagen interpretation is that it can lead to an instrumental view of science in which quantum mechanics could be interpreted as a mathematical formalism that helps to make predictions, but is incapable of describing the physical world as it is.
Today there are multiple interpretations of quantum mechanics competing with the Copenhagen interpretation, including the many-worlds interpretation the Bohmian interpretation, and the consistent histories interpretation.
The thought experiment presented a cat that could be alive or dead, based on an earlier random event, which is sometimes described as a paradox and attempts to demonstrate the apparent conflict involved in applying the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics to everyday objects.
According to the Copenhagen interpretation, the particle tunnels through the potential barrier.
This epistemological approach, promulgated by the school of Niels Bohr, is known as the Copenhagen interpretation of QM.
This idea is associated with what physics folks refer to as the Copenhagen Interpretation. What the?
Once the uncertainty principle began achieving traction, Lindley makes it clear that the Copenhagen interpretation was crystalliz[ed] into the standard view of quantum mechanics.
Although much progress was made under this banner, which came to be known as the Copenhagen interpretation because of Bohr's pervasive influence, it didn't provide a satisfying conceptual framework for some physicists.
Henry Stapp has written an account of the Copenhagen Interpretation (which he takes to be the commonality between the views of Bohr and Heisenberg) that was endorsed by Heisenberg and Rosenfeld (Bohr's longtime coworker) and that suggests that the wavefunction should be understood pragmatically.
Most quantum physicists pay little daily attention to the perplexing philosophical issues raised by Bohr's "Copenhagen interpretation" of the theory that so bothered Einstein.
Together and separately--never quite certain of the details--they recall the lovely days of collegiality and affection of the long-gone past, the silly moments of play, and the long walks and intellectual controversies out of which the great insights of quantum mechanics were forged: uncertainty, complementarity, the great compromise of the Copenhagen Interpretation that light can be both wave and particle.
Bohr and Heisenberg were largely responsible for developing the most far-reaching interpretation of quantum reality through their espousal of the "Copenhagen interpretation" of quantum mechanics.
