Science, Order and Creativity, Paperback Book


One of the foremost scientists and thinkers of our time, David Bohm worked alongside Oppenheimer and Einstein.

In Science, Order and Creativity he and physicist F.

David Peat propose a return to greater creativity and communication in the sciences.

They ask for a renewed emphasis on ideas rather than formulae, on the whole rather than fragments, and on meaning rather than mere mechanics.

Tracing the history of science from Aristotle to Einstein, from the Pythagorean theorem to quantum mechanics, the authors offer intriguing new insights into how scientific theories come into being, how to eliminate blocks to creativity and how science can lead to a deeper understanding of society, the human condition and the human mind itself.

Science, Order and Creativity looks to the future of science with elegance, hope and enthusiasm.
