preprint description
I examine recent arguments based on functionalism that claim to show that Bohm’s theory fails solve the measurement problem, or if it does so, it is only because it reduces to a form of the many-worlds theory. While these arguments reveal some interesting features of Bohm’s theory, I contend that they do not undermine the distinctive Bohmian solution to the measurement problem.
