Wholeness and the Implicate Order
By David Bohm
Routledge – 1983 – 240 pages
In his classic work, Wholeness and the Implicate Order, David Bohm develops a theory of quantum physics which treats the totality of existence, including matter and consciousness, as an unbroken whole.
David Bohm presents a rational and scientific theory which explains cosmology and the nature of reality; written clearly, and without the use of technical jargon, it is essential reading for those interested in physics, philosophy, psychology and the connection between consciousness and matter.
David Bohm was one of the foremost scientific thinkers and distinguished theoretical physicists of his generation. His best-known works include: Quantum Theory,Causality and Chance in Modern Physics and The Undivided Universe.
' Wholeness and the Implicate Order conveys a sense of work in progress, which aims at a distantly glimpsed ideal of the unification of all aspects of the world…The feeling of struggle in Bohm's book is its most appealing feature - Abner Shimony, Nature
'Bohm is a tremendously exciting thinker, and this is undoubtedly a book of the first importance' - Colin Wilson
'I find his concept of wholeness extraordinarily appealing, as an explanation of the riddles of modern physics, and as a prescription for human living' - John. P. Wiley Jr, Smithsonian
'One of the most important books of our times.' - Resurgence
