Book Description

24 Oct 1991
David Bohm is one of the foremost scientific thinkers of today and one of the most distinguished scientists of his generation. His challenge to the conventional understanding of quantum theory has led scientists to reexamine what it is they are going and his ideas have been an inspiration across a wide range of disciplines. Quantum Implications is a collection of original contributions by many of the world' s leading scholars and is dedicated to David Bohm, his work and the issues raised by his ideas.
The contributors range across physics, philosophy, biology, art, psychology, and include some of the most distinguished scientists of the day. There is an excellent introduction by the editors, putting Bohm's work in context and setting right some of the misconceptions that have persisted about the work of David Bohm

Product Description

Review

"This book should be of interest to anyone for whom physics is more than just a set of calculational recipes. It contains brain food for everybody from the formal theorist all the way to the artist searching for new concepts."-"Physics Today "A fitting tribute to one of the most searching thinkers in modern physics, and will become a standard reference work on the concepts of quantum mechanics."-"Nature ." . . a tribute to Professor Bohm's creative imagination, his single-mindedness, his inspirational guidance, and his complete dedication to further understanding of the fundamental issues . . . a major contribution to the annals of modern thought."-"New Humanity

First Sentence
I have been asked to explain how my ideas of hidden variables tie up with those on the implicate order, and to bring out in some detail how both these two notions are related. Read the first page

Format:Paperback
30 papers presented on the retirement of Professor David Bohm in 1987. Given Bohm's wide interest, in physics, philosophy, art, consciousness and so forth, this is an eclectic mix. There are papers on fundamental issues in the interpretation of quantum theory, by distinguished scientists such as Roger Penrose, Richard Feynmann, Geoffrey Chew, John Stuart Bell, Ilya Prigogine and more (at least two Nobel prizewinners). There are also some wider perspectives on the role of mathematics, epistemology and biology. Finally there are papers on the philosophy of the implicate order and it's relationship to art, society and the mind.

4.0 out of 5 stars understanding quantum physics 21 Jan 2010
By James Alley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
i believe the book would merit 5 stars if all essays were by david bohm.

however, they are not. those not written by him are written by collegues

and make very interesting reading material. however, they do not look at

the issues in the same way that the honoree did.
