Abstract

Everett's theory assumes (1) the completeness of the description by the wave function, (2) the linearity of the dynamics for the wave function, and (3) multiplicity. In this paper, I argue that these three assumptions of Everett's theory may lead to the violation of psychophysical supervenience.
