Inspired by the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics, the author introduces two axioms, one for measurement and the other for causality, to establish a new paradigm or world-description called "linguistic interpretation" or "quantum language".
The paradigm casts a new light on the wellknown problems in quantum mechanics including Heisenberg's uncertainty principle, EPR-paradox, Bell's inequality, Schrödinger's cat (Wigner's friend), Wheeler's delayed choice experiment, and double-slit experiment.
He shows that the paradigm works not only in quantum systems but also in classical systems, referring to regression analysis and Kalman filter in statistics and so on.
He emphasizes the paradigm is a natural consequence in the history of philosophy, and shows how the famous problems in philosophy are solved such as Leibniz=Clarke correspondence "What is space-time ?", Zeno's paradox , and the principle of equal probability.
He thus leads us to a conclusion that quantum language is a core concept of science.
