About the Book

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

Reviews

'This book should be of interest to anyone for whom physics is more than 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
