Link: David Albert’s lectures on the foundations of quantum mechanics

Here is a link to a website hosting movie files of David Albert lecturing on the foundations of quantum mechanics. From a superficial look, it looks like he’s going over a lot of ground also covered in his book Quantum Mechanics and Experience, but there seems to be prominent discussion of the problem of probabilities in the many-worlds interpretation, and in particular of the Deutsch-Greaves-Saunders-Wallace, short Oxford, approach of trying to derive the Born rule from decision-theoretic assumptions. Should be interesting!
