Abstract : An interpretation of the process of measurement is proposed which can be placed wholly within the quantum theory. The entire system including the apparatus and even the mind of the observer can be considered to develop according to the Schrodinger equation. No separation in principle of the observer and the observed is necessary; nor is it necessary to introduce the type I process of von Neumann or wave function reduction. (Author)
