It is often stated that a measurement is to establish the probability correlation between the measured object and the measuring apparatus. However, the precise meaning of this statement does not seem to be understood consistently. Here, we shall discuss this problem, and clarify how the establishment of a measurement is related to the contextuality of quantum mechanics. From this point of view, we discuss the simultaneous measurability of non-commuting observables, Bohr’s reply to EPR ’s paradox and failure of the propensity interpretation.
