In Science, Order and Creativity, David Bohm and F. David Peat argue that science has lost its way in recent years and needs to go beyond a narrow and fragmented view of nature and embrace a wider holistic view that restores the importance of creativity and communication for all humanity - not just scientists. The result of a close collaboration by one of the 20th century's greatest physicists and thinkers, David Bohm, with leading science writer F. David Peat, provides a rare combination of profound reflection and clear exposition that can be appreciated by anyone concerned with science and its importance in our lives. This new edition includes a new preface and an extended additional chapter by Peat which draws upon further discussions with David Bohm before the latter's death in 1992. A fascinating diagnosis and considered proposal for a cure for science's ills, it is also very accessible entry point to the work of David Bohm. Bohm and Peat contend that science has lost its bearings in the last century in favour of a narrow, abstracted, fragmented approach to nature and reality. Tracing the history of science, Bohm and Peat offer intriguing new insights into how scientific theories come into being, how to eliminate blocks of creativity and how science can lead to a deeper understanding of society, the human condition and the human mind itself.

About the Author:

David Bohm, one of the key physicists and natural philosophers of the 20th century, was Professor of Theoretical Physics at Birkbeck University. F. David Peat is a leading science writer whose books include Infinite Potential: The Life and Times of David Bohm,(1997) Superstrings, (1989) and In Search of Nikolas Tesla (1998).

From Library Journal:

The authors deplore the alleged tendency of modern science toward "fragmentation" and the paradigms that seem to fix the accepted structure of each science rigidly between scientific revolutions. Veteran physicist Bohm ( Quantum Theory ) has advocated a causal interpretation of quantum mechanics that is not generally accepted by other physicists. In this book, based on conversations with Peat ( Synchronicity ), Bohm's theory is reviewed in terms accessible to the lay reader, and dialogue with supporters of the standard interpretation is urged. The nature of order and blocks to scientific creativity are also addressed. For comprehensive collections in the philosophy of science. Jack W. Weigel, Univ . of Michigan Lib., Ann Arbor
