A thought-provoking book in which the authors propose a return to greater creativity and communication in the sciences through a renewed emphasis on ideas, to give a more complete and meaningful approach.
In this thought-provoking new book, David Bohm, one of today's most foremost scientific thinkers, and David Peat, well-known science writer, contend that science has lost its bearings over the last century and become a narrow, abstracted and fragmented way of approaching nature and reality. The authors propose a return to greater creativity and communication in the sciences through a renewed emphasis on ideas rather than formulae, to give a more complete and meaningful approach. 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 energy, hope and enthusiasm. 'A rare combination of depth and breadth, this probing book stirs both the mind and the heart and attracts and inspires on many levels: philosophical, scientific, existential and spiritual.' - Dr Renee Weber
