The appearance to me is that Bohm was part of a very small minority in the physics community in his time and his work is in a larger minority now, but still a.

The Undivided Universe : David Bohm :
Back cover copy ‘In The Undivided Universe, ‘ Professor David Bohm, one of the foremost scientific thinkers and one of the most distinguished physicists of his generation, presents a radically different approach to quantum theory.
John Stewart Bell Peter Senge.
In collaboration with Stanford University neuroscientist Karl H. He was acquitted in Maybut Princeton had already suspended him. Bohm’s ambitious book—his last, published after his death—attempts to prove his quantum theory mathematically and show that it is the most complete theory for the moment. What is required in order to correct the distortions introduced by thought, according to Bohm, is a form of proprioception, or self-awareness.
Every physicist and physics student who wants to understand quantum mechanics should read this “Anyone univwrse wants to understand quantum mechanics should read this book.
There are no davic topics on this book yet. In short, this book makes a highly articulate case for an ontological holism that has the ability to make intuitive, graspable, simple in its own way sense of the physical world and Everything.

David Bohm – Wikipedia
The mature expression of Bohm’s views in the psychological field was presented in a seminar conducted in at the Oak Grove Schoolfounded by Krishnamurti in Ojai, California. Unierse Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Staff, “American Journal of Physics “This is a rich and stimulating book. There was a significant revival of interest in Bohm’s ideas in the dacid s and the early s; the Ninth Symposium of the Colston Research Society in Bristol in was a key turning point toward greater tolerance of his ideas.
Be the first to ask a question about The Undivided Universe. He and Hiley introduce their results in considerable mathematical detail, with difficult excursions into philosophy.
The Absolute Now
The quantum potential paradigm is neat; but like every other quantum mechanics book I’ve read, this one discusses a lot of meta-physics. Clemens Lode rated it really liked it Jul 21, Kamal Morchid rated it it was amazing Jan 31, If you like books and love to build cool products, we may be looking for you.
Time doesn’t flow backwards as in Feynman Diagrams, or delayed choice experiments. He subsumes the common theory by providing a model for a holistic, quantum universe, not merely predicting experimental results, and shows that the classical physics world is a sub-world of a quantum one.
Deborah Rankin rated it liked it Jun 17, He initially called his approach a hidden variable theory, but he later called it ontological theoryreflecting his view that a stochastic process underlying the phenomena described by his theory might one day be found.

In addition to his scientific work, Bohm was deeply interested in exploring the nature of consciousness, with particular attention to the role of thought as it relates to attention, motivation, and conflict in the individual and in society.
David Bohm, the cold war, and a new interpretation of quantum mechanics Archived 26 March at the Wayback Machine. That showed for the first time that the magnetic vector potentialhitherto a mathematical convenience, could have real physical quantum effects.
Quantum Mechanics is About Quantum Information. David Bohm and Basil Hiley worked together for twenty years and between them developed a very unusual approach to quantum theory. Views Read Edit View history. Starting from the realization that the WKB approximation of quantum mechanics leads to deterministic equations and convinced that a mere approximation could not turn a probabilistic theory into a deterministic theory, he doubted the inevitability of the conventional approach to quantum mechanics.
