Bohm (Supplement) NCUACS 156/6/07 GENERAL INTRODUCTION For an outline of the career of David Bohm see the introduction to the ‘Catalogue of the papers and correspondence of David Joseph Bohm’ compiled in 1997 (NCUACS catalogue no. 66/4/97), hereafter referred to as the original catalogue. A longer account is to be found in B.J. Hiley, 'David Joseph Bohm 20 December 1917-27 October 1992’, Biographical Memoirs of Fellows of the Royal Society 43 (1997), 105-131, a copy of which is at A.133. PROVENANCE This material was received from Professor B.J. Hiley, via Birkbeck College London, in November 2006. DESCRIPTION OF THE COLLECTION This material, which spans 1933-2005, forms a valuable additional resource for the study of Bohm’s life and thought. There are some documents that directly relate to material presented in the 1997 catalogue, and this is indicated in the catalogue entries by reference to the original catalogue, but the bulk is new. death to 1998. The catalogue entries in this volume have been numbered to follow on from the earlier catalogue. Section A, Biographical, includes a copy of the Royal Society biographical memoir of Bohm, additional interviews and dialogues material, including a series of contributions to the magazine ReVision, and some additional material relating to the Ojai Dialogues of 1989. There are further articles about Bohm showing the continuing interest his life and ideas inspired. Life and career material includes reinforced the picture of him as a loner shunned by the mainstream scientific establishment. The documentation of his election to the Fellowship of the Royal Society including letters of congratulation. The original catalogue contained a solitary letter of congratulation, from Brian Josephson, which Of particular note is the further material presented on the themes of wholeness and and material relating to his wife Saral Bohm that shows her promoting her husband’s ideas after his addition to this of congratulations from figures such as Lord Flowers, Sir Roger Penrose and Abdus Salam indicates the high regard in which he was widely held. The section also has a little personal correspondence, which includes documentation of visits to North America in the 1970s and 1980s, Section B, Drafts, publications and lectures, is the largest in this catalogue. It covers the period 1951 D.J. Bohm (Supplement) NCUACS 156/6/07 fragmentation and the implicate order. The section also presents significant documentation of Bohm’s ideas in quantum theory. Drafts by Bohm include series of lectures ‘On plasma physics’, delivered at the University of Rome in May 1958 and on ‘General theory of collective coordinates’, University of Bristol, about the same date. Bohm’s wider vision is documented in papers delivered at various meetings, such as 'An inquiry into the function of language and thought’ (Institute of Contemporary Arts, London, March, 1971), ‘Insight, imagination, reason and the nature of knowledge’ and ‘Consciousness’ (Syracuse University, September 1982), and ‘Fragmentation and wholeness’ (Eidgenossische Technische Hochschule, Zurich, Switzerland, 1986). The coverage of Bohm’s published output in the original catalogue was rather thin; this catalogue presents significantly more material documenting his publications. It includes articles on quantum theory from the 1950s onwards, drafts of Causality and Chance in Modern Physics (1957) and the final chapter of Wholeness and the Implicate Order (1980), and a posthumously published work 'Cosmos, Matter, Life and Consciousness’, in The Spirit of Science. From Experiment to Experience, 1998 from a lecture originally given in 1983. Section C, Correspondence, presents important new material on Bohm’s life and ideas. It includes a bound volume of correspondence with the philosopher J.G. Bennett (1962-1964) largely arising from ideas put forward in Bennett's book The Dramatic Universe, much influenced by G.I. Gurdjieff. There is correspondence with A. Kahler and her daughter H.M. Loewy 1950-1951, in which Bohm discusses his difficulties with the Un-American Activities Committee, his move to Brazil and future plans. There memorial meeting to Bohm held at Birkbeck College London in May 1993. There is also an index of correspondents. T.E. Powell his ideas in quantum theory. mathematician Miriam Yevick. The letters cover the early 1950s after Bohm’s move to Brazil and Israeli conflict. There is an extensive set of photocopies of manuscript letters from Bohm to the transcripts of correspondence with Yitzhak (‘Isidore’) Woolfson, Bohm's brother-in-law.
