There is still much controversy in quantum mechanics over the concept of local reality and entanglement but this concept is, surprisingly, somewhat neglected by philosophy suggesting that philosophy has here let slip an opportunity. This paper argues that the theoretical background to Bell’s inequality overlooks a fundamental coordinate determination. If a coordinate factor for polarization or spin is included, Bell’s theoretical probabilistic inequality for correlation between the parts of an entangled system is changed to a probability that agrees, instead of disagreeing, with experimental results. Einstein’s objections to indeterminacy and apparent lack of locality reality would then be upheld.
