David Bohm: Causality and Chance, Letters to Three Women

David Bohm: Causality and Chance, Letters to Three Women (2017)

The letters transcribed in this book were written by physicist David Bohm to three close female acquaintances in the period 1950 to 1956. They provide a background to his causal interpretation of quantum mechanics and the Marxist philosophy that inspired his scientific work in quantum theory, probability and statistical mechanics. In his letters, Bohm reveals the ideas that led to his ground breaking book Causality and Chance in Modern Physics. The political arguments as well as the acute personal problems contained in these letters help to give a rounded, human picture of this leading scientist and twentieth century thinker.

We Need Your Support

We have numerous projects and collaborations on the go. Part of the David Bohm Society’s function is to locate, collect, inventory, preserve, and make available Bohm’s work. But more importantly we must see this work realized and that will require the shared efforts of a unique, serious group of people. We have just launched a Patreon account through which you can donate to us. There are many ways to support us and the best way is connecting with us and letting us know about your explorations and efforts to realize the proposals.

We will be releasing some YouTube videos where we comment more about the work we are doing and what we would like to see happen.
