Abstract
We propose to interpret the notion of probability in quantum mechanics as Timothy Williamson’s evidential probability and call such probability quantum evidential probability. Williamson’s evidential probability, in our view, naturally fits into Jocelyn Benoist’s Wittgensteinian contextual realism rejecting the premises of the Modern philosophy and allowing dissolving of quantum paradoxes.
