In the preface to the second edition of Science, Order, and Creatvity, F. David Peat writes of his co-author David Bohm:
… Bohm’s thinking was like a spiral – for a time he would focus on one area and then appear to leave it for some quite different interest, only to return, months or even years later, with a much deeper sense of the original topic.
I like to think that this is my thought process as well, as reflected in the breadth and depth of the WordPress categories I post to 😉
I have to agree, Ian! It is wonderful to find someone with diverse interests and broad knowledge. David Bohm has to be one of the most compelling figures of this century with his combined passion for physics, psychology, metaphysics and just about everything else under the sun. I’ll have to check out this book, thanks.
David Bohm was a remarkable thinker I agree. I was saddened a while ago when I was chatting to a Quantum Physicist who starting ranting about Bohm’s state of mind in his latter years, he even went as far to say that he was suffering from dementia which I find incredibly distasteful.
