His challenge to the conventional understanding of quantum theory has led scientists to re-examine what it is they are doing and to question the nature of their theories and their scientific methodology. Quantum Implications is a collection of original contributions by many of the worlds leading scholars and is dedicated to David Bohm, his work and the issues raised by his ideas. It is a tribute to his creative imagination, his single mindedness, his inspirational guidance, and his complete dedication to the further understanding of the fundamental issues in physics, philosophy and the general intellectual well-being of mankind. The contributors span a wide range of disciplines including physics, philosophy, psychology, biology and art, and all experts in their own fields. They include three Nobel Laureates and some of the most distinguished scientists of the day . David Bohm has contributed a paper himself on hidden variables and how his ideas relate to the implicate order.- There is an excellent introduction by the editors, putting Bohms work in context, explaining its more subtle points and setting right some of the misconceptions that have persisted about the work of David Bohm.
