We Are Not Walking Wave Functions. A response to Alexander Wendt's book “Quantum Mind and Social Science”.

Abstract Wendt raises many interesting questions in his book, but to get to the answers he wants, he relies on a misunderstanding of the nature of the quantum states of warm wet macroscopic objects.

Submitted in March 2016 and published in June 2018 in the Journal for the Theory of Social Behaviour, this was an invited piece for a forum on Alexander Wendt's book “Quantum Mind and Social Science” (Cambridge 2015).
