I was wondering if anyone could tell me who are considered the leading opponents of the Copenhagen Interpretation who are alive today?--and even what would be the best way to get myself some formal physics education under such individuals? I would love to learn more about physics, although I do not have any formal education in it. I do have a masters degree in education and bachelors in business. Is it possible for someone in my position to go straight to a masters? PhD? I have considerable informal learning in philosophy and philosophy of science, and a bit in physics (I've spent about 10 years in relative isolation in Nepal and spent much of my waking hours reading during that time). Even though I don't have formal training in physics (and thus in one sense have no right to have a strong opinion), I still can't help but strongly feel based on what I understand that the Copenhagen Interpretation is not only based on a purely philosophical assumption--but an error. And I believe that predictive accuracy does not necessarily vindicate philosophical assumptions (to say nothing for errors). But--granted--I have not been able to understand Bell's theorem and how the Aspect (and following) experiments are supposed to have vindicated the CI in light of it--which, as I understand, is the real heart of the argument. Thus, I am eager to learn. On the one hand, I am willing to change my mind if the Bell-Aspect argument really is as strong as I have heard it is. But on the other hand, I almost can't even imagine it can vindicate what appears to me to be the grossest of philosophical errors (the empircal criterion of meaning, which is now all-but universally recognized in philosophy to be self-refuting) which underlay the origins of the Copenhagen Interpretation. Sorry if anything here gives offense, and I crave instruction and guidance, so thanks for any help anyone can give!
