Also, the index is useless in the kindle version, since it's just a list of words with no links to the right spot in the text. (6) It has important advantages for cosmology, especially because it can discuss the universe apart from the questions of ‘the collapse of the wave function’ and of the absolute need for the presence of observers, which are characteristic of other interpretations. On the back cover of this book, The Undivided Universe, we find an excellent review that makes the key point about this interpretation: “Any physicist with an interest in foundational issues should read this book. This superb text by David Bohm, formerly Princeton University and Emeritus Professor of Theoretical Physics at Birkbeck College, University of London, provides a formulation of the quantum theory in terms of qualitative and imaginative concepts that have evolved outside and beyond classical theory.

Born on December 20, 1917, in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, he went on to join Robert Oppenheimerâs famous group of physicists in Berkeley, California. Bohm advanced the view that the old Cartesian model of reality (that there were two â¦ Bohm continued to work on this other interpretation, which went from being referred to as ‘hidden variables’ to the ‘ontological interpretation’, for 40 years until his death in 1992. It seems that this is the only book I needed to buy. In 1951, he published a textbook about quantum mechanics. More extraordinarily, why did people go on producing ‘impossibility’ proofs, after 1952, and as recently as 1978?
