9780415119801: Thought as a System (Key Ideas)

In this book, David Bohm takes as his subject the role of thought and knowledge, rejecting the notion that our thinking processes neutrally report on what is "out there" in an objective world. He explores the manner in which thought actively participates in forming our perceptions, our sense of meaning, and our daily actions. He suggests that collective thought and knowledge have become so automated that we are largely controlled by them, with a subsequent loss of authenticity, freedom and order. David Bohm is the author of "Wholeness and Implicate Order", "The Undivided Universe", "Unfolding Meaning", "Science, Order and Creativity" and "Causality and Chance in Modern Physics".
