Question 1 has been answered more than twice: opening up the possibility of changing the principles of classical physics. The same scientists who did it say so.

The second question is wrong: why should philosophy provide any knowledge in quantum mechanics? Are we talking about knowledge or interepretations? If this distinction is not clarified, you will continue to raise the question badly.
