    1. An absolutely essential read. Bohm covers many topics, some of which are:- Fragmentation in scientific disciplines and divergence from application of the scientific process as a method of finding universal truths. He argues that while science can be divided into branches for ease of progress, it must be kept in mind that these subdisciplines are not mutually exclusive and must be considered at all times as abstractions of one another, where, for instance the unsolved problems of quantum mechanic [...]


    2. This is an amazing book! One of the main purposes of the book is to "draw attention to the key importance of liberating creativity" (p. 271). The book has really deepened my understanding and appreciation of creativity and its relation to order. It has also given me new insights into the history of science. Bohm and Peat view "misinformation" as "pollution" (p. 249). I'd say this book contains very little misinformation. Usually, I mark sections as very interesting, worth noting, and don't agree [...]


    3. An outstanding work that shows how a rigid "infrastructure of ideas" can block creativity. It proves the old proverb that it's what you think you know rather than what you don't know that really hurts you.


    4. Great book. Bohm & Peat make the case that a healthy society depends on a robust balance of science, art and religion, fundamentally motivated by truth seeking, while weaving in a fascinating description of the pilot wave quantum theory to tie it all together.




    5. Although many chapters of this book were way over my head, the chapter about creativity was absolutely brilliant. It is some time ago that I read it, but I want to read the whole book again some time, because it gives a sort of bigger picture in which creativity plays its very important role. But first I want to read more of David Bohm's other books.


    6. I really enjoyed this book! The biggest take-home for me was having someone like David Bohm asserting that the function of consciousness is to play, because that is how we learn about our world, and to take ourselves (and our science) to seriously is to "play falsely". I totally agree!
