He abandoned Marxism in the wake of the Hungarian Uprising in Bohm’s bphm concern was with understanding the nature of reality in general and of consciousness in particular as a coherent whole, which according to Bohm is never static or complete but rather an unfolding process.

David Bohm – Wikipedia

In the seminar, Bohm develops several interrelated themes. With the aid of new concepts such as active information together with non-locality, they provide a comprehensive account of all the basic features of quantum mechanics, including the relativistic domain and quantum field theory.

Thought as a System. The full text of this book review is only available to subscribers of the London Review of Books. To complement it, he developed a mathematical and physical theory of “implicate” and “explicate” order. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. In Maythe House Un-American Activities Committee called upon Bohm to testify because of his previous ties to suspected communists.


He found himself proposing that far separated events were correlated by influences which acted instantaneously.

The mathematics can be difficult for dxvid non-technical reader, but overall some very intriguing stuff, particularly his digressions into consciousness and his explanations for classical dynamics as a function of quantum dynamics.

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. Michael Bunner rated it really liked it Apr 13, Bohm maintains that thought is a system, in the sense that it is an interconnected network of concepts, ideas and assumptions that pass seamlessly between individuals and throughout society.

Also, it’s obvious that Hiley rushed the book through the publisher after Bohm died to keep the Bohm name on the cover.

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. Bohm temporarily even held Uri Geller ‘s bending of keys and spoons to be possible, prompting warning remarks by his colleague Basil Hiley that it might undermine the scientific credibility of their work in physics.

Underlying all this is unbroken wholeness even though our civilization has developed in such a way as to strongly emphasize the separation into parts. Martin Gardner reported this in a Skeptical Inquirer article and also critiqued the views of Jiddu Krishnamurtiwith whom Bohm had met in and had had many subsequent exchanges.

It is intensely consistent and coherent in its approach to all of experience, and treats physical theory and mathematics as descriptive of an ever-evolving horizon of our total understanding.

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.

Those concerns were a natural extension of his earlier interest in Marxist ideology boh, Hegelian philosophy.
