On creativity by David Bohm ( Book )
17 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in English and held by 871 libraries worldwide
"Creativity is fundamental to human experience. In On Creativity, David Bohm, the world-renowned scientist, investigates the phenomenon from all sides: not only the creativity of invention and of imagination but also that of perception and of discovery. The creative impulse is instinctive to everyone, but its revolutionary potential is rarely realised. For, he argues, its success depends upon the individual's ability to jolt the workaday mind into a dynamic state that enables true creativity and originality to become possible. By awakening this creative state of mind each person can then discover the creative harmony that lies not only within their own psyche but also behind everything that they experience."--BOOK JACKET.
Science, order, and creativity by David Bohm ( Book )
28 editions published between 1987 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 801 libraries worldwide
One of the foremost scientists and thinkers of our time, David Bohm worked alongside Oppenheimer and Einstein. In "Science, Order and Creativity" he and physicist F. David Peat propose a return to greater creativity and communication in the sciences. They ask for a renewed emphasis on ideas rather than formulae, on the whole rather than fragments, and on meaning rather than mere mechanics. Tracing the history of science from Aristotle to Einstein, from the Pythagorean theorem to quantum mechanics, the authors offer intriguing new insights into how scientific theories come into being.
The undivided universe : an ontological interpretation of quantum theory by David Bohm ( Book )
18 editions published between 1993 and 2005 in English and held by 691 libraries worldwide
"In The Undivided Universe, Professor David Bohm, one of the foremost scientific thinkers of the day and one of the most distinguished physicists of his generation, presents a radically different approach to quantum theory. With Basil Hiley, his co-author and long-time colleague, an interpretation of quantum theory is developed which gives a clear, intuitive understanding of its meaning and in which there is a coherent notion of the reality of the universe without assuming a fundamental role for the human observer." "With the aid of new concepts such as active information together with non-locality, a comprehensive account of all the basic features of quantum theory is provided, including the relativistic domain and quantum field theory. The new approach is contrasted with other commonly accepted interpretations and it is shown that paradoxical or unsatisfactory features of the other interpretations, such as the wave-particle duality and the collapse of the wave function, do not arise. Finally, on the basis of the new interpretation, the authors make suggestions that go beyond current quantum theory and they indicate areas in which quantum theory may be expected to break down in a way that will allow for a test."--BOOK JACKET.
On dialogue by David Bohm ( Book )
31 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in 6 languages and held by 629 libraries worldwide
The question of how we communicate is at the heart of On Dialogue. This revised and expanded edition is the most comprehensive documentation to date of best-selling author David Bohm's dialogical world view. Whilst the exercise of dialogue is as old as civilization itself, in recent times a profusion of practices, techniques and definitions has arisen around the term 'dialogue'. None of these approaches can claim to be the correct view, but it is possible to distinguish between them and to clarify the intention of each. To this end, the current edition of On Dialogue illuminates the underlying meaning, purpose and uniqueness of David Bohm's work in this field.

Thought as a system ( Book )
11 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 492 libraries worldwide
"In Thought as a System, best-selling author David Bohm takes as his subject the role of thought and knowledge at every level of human affairs, from our private reflections on personal identity to our collective efforts to fashion a tolerable civilization." "Elaborating upon principles of the relationship between mind and matter first put forward in Wholeness and the Implicate Order, Professor Bohm rejects the notion that our thinking processes neutrally report on what is 'out there' in an objective world. He explores the manner in which thought actively participates in forming our perceptions, our sense of meaning and our daily actions. He 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." "In conversations with fifty seminar participants in Ojai, California, David Bohm offers a radical perspective on an underlying source of human conflict, and inquires into the possibility of individual and collective transformation."--BOOK JACKET.
