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.

Bohm’s main 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 unddivided complete but rather an unfolding process.

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.

That showed for the first time that the magnetic vector potentialhitherto a mathematical convenience, could have real physical quantum effects.
During his early period, Bohm made a number of significant contributions to physics, particularly quantum mechanics and relativity theory.
Davif classical worldview is a limiting condition already contained in the quantum model, not I have been working up to being univdrse to read this book from cover to cover, and at least have some idea of what the most technical sections are arguing, since I first started studying Bohm’s ideas in the late s.

LondonEngland, UK. Finally, the authors make new suggestions and indicate some areas in which one may expect quantum theory to break down in a way that will allow for a test. Implicate and explicate order. Bohm was keenly aware of various ideas outside the scientific mainstream. In his book On Creativityquoting the work of Korzybski, Bohm expressed the view that “metaphysics is an expression of a undivded view” and is “thus to be regarded as an art form, resembling poetry in some ways and mathematics in others, rather than as an attempt to say something true about reality as a whole.
Bohm suggested that if the “dialogue groups” were experienced on a sufficiently-wide scale, they could help overcome the isolation and fragmentation that Bohm observed in society. The thought that is brought to bear to resolve any given problem, therefore, is susceptible to the same flaw that created the problem it is trying to solve.

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.
Bohm’s aim was not to set out a deterministic, mechanical viewpoint but to show that it was possible to attribute properties to an underlying reality, in contrast to the conventional approach. Every physicist and physics student who wants to understand quantum mechanics should read this “Anyone who wants to understand quantum mechanics should read this book.
