Causality and chance in modern physics by David Bohm( Book )

107 editions published between 1951 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 2,300 WorldCat member 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
On dialogue by David Bohm( )

60 editions published between 1990 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 2,022 WorldCat member 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 by David Bohm( )

27 editions published between 1992 and 2015 in English and Vietnamese and held by 1,647 WorldCat member 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
Quantum theory by David Bohm( Book )

96 editions published between 1951 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 1,568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This superb text by David Bohm, formerly Princeton University and Emeritus Professor of Theoretical Physics at Birkbeck College, University of London, provides a formulation of the quantum theory in terms of qualitative and imaginative concepts that have evolved outside and beyond classical theory. Although it presents the main ideas of quantum theory essentially in nonmathematical terms, it follows these with a broad range of specific applications that are worked out in considerable mathematical detail. Addressed primarily to advanced undergraduate students, the text begins with a study of the physical formulation of the quantum theory, from its origin and early development through an analysis of wave vs. particle properties of matter. In Part II, Professor Bohm addresses the mathematical formulation of the quantum theory, examining wave functions, operators, Schrödinger's equation, fluctuations, correlations, and eigenfunctions. Part III takes up applications to simple systems and further extensions of quantum theory formulation, including matrix formulation and spin and angular momentum. Parts IV and V explore the methods of approximate solution of Schrödinger's equation and the theory of scattering. In Part VI, the process of measurement is examined along with the relationship between quantum and classical concepts. Throughout the text, Professor Bohm places strong emphasis on showing how the quantum theory can be developed in a natural way, starting from the previously existing classical theory and going step by step through the experimental facts and theoretical lines of reasoning which led to replacement of the classical theory by the quantum theory
Wholeness and the implicate order by David Bohm( Book )

109 editions published between 1980 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The special theory of relativity by David Bohm( Book )

55 editions published between 1965 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 1,386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bohm presents the theory of relativity as a unified whole, making clear the reasons which led to its adoption and explaining its basic meaning. He also reveals the limited truth of some of the assumptions which stop us appreciating it
On creativity by David Bohm( )

38 editions published between 1996 and 2012 in English and Chinese and held by 1,176 WorldCat member 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
Science, order, and creativity by David Bohm( Book )

56 editions published between 1987 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 1,095 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The undivided universe : an ontological interpretation of quantum theory by David Bohm( Book )

34 editions published between 1991 and 2006 in English and held by 770 WorldCat member 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

The ending of time by J Krishnamurti( Book )

22 editions published between 1985 and 2003 in English and held by 458 WorldCat member 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

Bohm-Biederman correspondence by Charles Joseph Biederman( )

8 editions published between 1998 and 2002 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It was sheer chance that I encountered David Bohm's writing in 1958 ... I knew nothing about him. What struck me about his work and prompted my initial letter was his underlying effort to seek for some larger sense of reality, which seemed a very humanized search."--Charles Biederman, from the foreword of the book This book marks the beginning of a four thousand page correspondence between Charles Biederman, founder of Constructivism in the 1930s, and David Bohm the prestigious physicist known for his interpretation of quantum theory.
