### Abstract

Environment-induced decoherence and superselection have been a subject of intensive research over the past two decades. Yet, their implications for the foundational problems of quantum mechanics, most notably the quantum measurement problem, have remained a matter of great controversy. This paper is intended to clarify key features of the decoherence program, including its more recent results, and to investigate their implications for foundational issues, not only concerning the measurement problem but also with respect to the main interpretive approaches of
