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.

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.
To my personal opinion David Bohm deserves much more credit ... 4 Oct. 2014

To my personal opinion David Bohm deserves much more credit. His theory about the hidden veritable (With few adjustments) will be more correct than the theory today. He was a scientist, humanist, a man with open mind. I salute him. David S.
