This internationally known physicist has developed a theory of quantum physics which addresses the totality of existence, including matter and consciousness, as an unbroken whole. The late Bohm’s concept of “implicate order” provides a basis for bridging science to the realm of spirit. For two decades he explored this possibility with J. Krishnamurti, the famed religious teacher. (hosted by Michael Toms)
David Bohm, Ph.D. made significant contributions in the fields of theoretical physics, philosophy, and neuropsychology, and to the Manhattan Project. He was a colleague of J. Robert Oppenheimer and became an assistant professor at Princeton University, where he worked closely with Albert Einstein. He is one of the most influential theorists of the emerging paradigm through which the world is increasingly viewed. Bohm’s approach to philosophy and physics receive expression in his books Wholeness and the Implicate Order and Science, Order and Creativity. His final work, the posthumously published The Undivided Universe: An Ontological Interpretation of Quantum Theory resulted from a decades-long collaboration with his colleague Basil Hiley.
His books include:
- Quantum Theory (new edition Dover Publications 1989)
- Wholeness and the Implicate Order (Routledge Kegan Paul 1981)
- Science, Order, and Creativity: A Dramatic New Look at the Creative Roots of Science and Life (Bantam 1987)
- The Undivided Universe: An Ontological Interpretation of Quantum Theory (Routledge Kegan Paul 1995)
- On Dialogue (edited by Lee Nichol) (Routledge 1996)
- On Creativity (edited by Lee Nichol) (Routledge 1998)
