"Of exceptional importance. A genuine philosophy of nature, written by a physicist."-Hibbert Journal "Bohm's challenging book perhaps marks the beginning of a retreat from high-flown obscurantism and a return to common sense in science."-Scientific American "Bohm's ideas deserve careful study... Through the stimulus it will provide for the thoughtful investigation of some of the most searching questions of modern physical science, this book serves a very useful purpose."-Physics Today
Causality and Chance in Modern Physics Paperback edition by David Bohm
Creativity is fundamental to human experience. In On Creativity David Bohm, the world-renowned scientist, investigates the phenomenon from all sides. This is a remarkable and life-affirming book by one of the most far-sighted thinkers of modern
David Bohm identified creative dialogue, a sharing of assumptions and understanding, as a means by which the individual, and society as a whole, can learn more about themselves and others and achieve a renewed sense of purpose.
Best-selling author David Bohm suggests that collective thought and knowledge have become so automated that we are in large part controlled by them, with a subsequent loss of authenticity, freedom and order.
Bohm, one of the foremost scientific thinkers of our time, and Hiley present a completely original approach to quantum theory which will alter our understanding of the world and reveal that a century of modern physics needs to be reconsidered
Tracing the history of science from Aristotle to Einstein, from the Pythagorean theorem to quantum mechanics, this title offers intriguing insights into how scientific theories come into being, how to eliminate blocks to creativity and how science can lead to an understanding of society, the human condition and the human mind itself.
Investigating the social factors that make up the knowledge of children and childhood, this book aims to promote a greater appreciation of this stage of life. Viewing childhood from a social constructionist perspective, it gives a framework through which to understand private attitudes and public policy in relation to the child.
