Abstract

Quantum-mechanical event descriptions are context-dependent descriptions. The role of quantum (non-distributed) logic is in the partial ordering of contexts rather than in the ordering of quantum mechanical events. Moreover the kind of quantum logic displayed by quantum mechanics can easily be inferred from the general notion of context in ordinary language.
