9780201328202: Infinite Potential: The Life And Times Of David Bohm
Reseña del editor:

Infinite Potential is the first biography of David Bohm--brilliant physicist, explorer of consciousness, student of Oppenheimer, friend to Einstein, and enemy of the House Committee on Un-American Activities. Although he battled bouts of crippling depression, Bohm proved to be one of the twentieth century's most original thinkers, influencing the fields of physics, philosophy, psychology, language, and education. In this compelling narrative, David Peat explains Bohm's life and landmark scientific work, including his famous "hidden variables" causal interpretation of quantum mechanics, which created a storm of controversy, yet may well be the only theory that describes the true nature of reality.

Biografía del autor:

F. David Peat, renowned author of many general books on science--including, with David Bohm, Science, Order & Creativity--was a friend and colleague of David Bohm for more than twenty years.

Descripción The Perseus Books Group, United States, 1997. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 234 x 155 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.This is the first biography of David Bohm, brilliant physicist, explorer of consciousness, student of Oppenheimer, friend of Einstein, and enemy to the House Un-American Activities Committee. In Infinite Potential, Peat describes how David Bohm came to believe that the traditional interpretation of quantum mechanics - with its barriers of uncertainty - was incomplete. In a bold step that turned quantum mechanics on its head, he introduced the implicate order, which created a storm of controversy, yet may well have opened the door to a much deeper theory of the nature of reality. In these pages, the general reader will obtain the first clear, non-mathematical explanation of Bohm s brilliant theory, which gave new hope of finding the elusive hidden variables theory, the missing piece of the quantum mechanics puzzle for which Albert Einstein had spent decades searching. As Peat shows, Einstein had such a high regard for Bohm and his work that he made Bohm his close collaborator and friend. But Bohm the scientist was also Bohm the courageous human being. Born in a small town in Pennsylvania, he began his career as an American physicist, but was forced to give up his U.S. citizenship and flee America s borders by Tail Gunner Joe McCarthy s anti-communist witch hunters. This book captures the suspense of Bohm s steadfast refusal to bow before McCarthy s inquisitors and betray his colleagues, and the suffering he endured in his subsequent exile and years of wandering before he finally found sympathy for his plight and support for his theories at Birkbeck College in England.
