Quantum theory by David Bohm( Book )
74 editions published between 1951 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 1,443 libraries worldwide
This advanced undergraduate-level text provides a formulation of the quantum theory in terms of qualitative and imaginative concepts outside classical theory. A broad range of specific applications follows, worked out in considerable mathematical detail. Also included: an examination of the relationship between quantum and classical concepts. Preface. Index
Causality and chance in modern physics by David Bohm( Book )
112 editions published between 1951 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 1,384 libraries worldwide
In this classic, David Bohm was the first to offer us his causal interpretation of the quantum theory. Causality and Chance in Modern Physics continues to make possible further insight into the meaning of the quantum theory and to suggest ways of extending the theory into new directions

42 editions published between 1980 and 2011 in 8 languages and held by 1,192 libraries worldwide
In his classic work, the author develops a theory of quantum physics which treats the totality of existence, including matter and consciousness, as an unbroken whole. This book is for those interested in physics, philosophy, psychology, etc

The undivided universe : an ontological interpretation of quantum theory by David Bohm( Book )
28 editions published between 1991 and 2005 in English and held by 724 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."--Jacket
On creativity by David Bohm( Book )
38 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 692 libraries worldwide
"On Creativity is a collection of previously unpublished or unavailable essays by David Bohm, which are all related directly to the nature of creativity." "A significant portion of the material draws overtly from Bohm's perception as a practising scientist - his notions of what underlies a paradigm shift, or how laws of nature, theories and hypotheses are perceived, rationalized and axiomatized. However, the novelty and appeal of Bohm's views of these processes is the suggestion that the work of the visual artist is remarkably similar to that of the scientist. He explores these similarities at length and goes so far as to suggest that the creative processes of the scientist and the artist are at work in every person."--Jacket
On dialogue by David Bohm( Book )
27 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 578 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
The ending of time by J Krishnamurti( Book )
28 editions published between 1985 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 530 libraries worldwide
This very important work offers penetrating dialogues between the great spiritual leader and the renowned physicist that shed light on the fundamental nature of existence. Krishnamurti and David Bohm probe such questions as why has humanity made thought so important in every aspect of life? How does one cleanse the mind of the accumulation of time and break the pattern of ego -centered activity'? The Ending of Time concludes by referring to the wrong turn humanity has taken, but does not see this as something from which there is no escape. There is an insistence that mankind can change fundamentally but this requires going from one's narrow and particular interests toward the general, and ultimately moving still deeper into that purity of compassion, love and intelligence that originates beyond thought, time, or even emptiness
Thought as a system by David Bohm( Book )
29 editions published between 1992 and 2015 in English and Vietnamese and held by 437 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."--Jacket

The essential David Bohm by David Bohm( Book )
4 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 260 libraries worldwide
There are few scientists of the twentieth century whose life's work has created more excitement and controversy than that of physicist David Bohm (1917-1992). Exploring the philosophical implication of both physics and consciousness, Bohm's penchant for questioning scientific and social orthodoxy was the expression of a rare and maverick intelligence. For Bohm, the world of matter and the experience of consciousness were two aspects of a more fundamental process he call the implicate order. Without a working sensibility of what this implicate order might be, our conceptions of the various threads of Bohm's work - whether in quantum theory or social dialogue remain incomplete. But with an enhanced understanding of such an order, the wholeness of Bohm's work becomes apparent and accessible. For the first time in a single volume, The Essential David Bohm offers a comprehensive overview of Bohm's original works from a non-technical perspective. Including three chapters of previously unpublished material, each reading has been selected to highlight some aspect of the implicate order process, and to provide an introduction to one of the most provocative thinkers of our time
