Abstract

In de Ronde and Massri (Against ‘particle metaphysics’ and ‘collapses’ within the definition of quantum entanglement, submitted, 2019b) it was argued against the orthodox definition of quantum entanglement in terms of pure and separable states. In this paper we attempt to discuss how the logos categorical approach to quantum mechanics (de Ronde and Massri in Int J Theor Phys, 2018. https://doi.org/10.1007/s10773-018-3914-0; in Int J Theor Phys 58:1968–1988, 2019a) is able to provide an objective formal account of the notion of entanglement—completely independent of both purity and separability—in terms of the potential coding of intensive relations and effective relations. We will show how our novel redefinition allows us to provide an anschaulich content to the notion of entanglement, erasing in this way the “spookiness” still present within its orthodox understanding in terms of space-time separated collapse particles.
