The David Bohm Papers has Scanned and Released a lot of New Bohm Material

The David Bohm Papers recently updated their site and added a lot of new documents for download as PDF files than were never previously available on the internet before.  In total we have counted 119 scanned documents so far.

Most of these documents pertain to Bohm’s work in physics, but there are also several pertaining to his views on thought, culture, humanity’s crises, and related topics.

As an example here is a sampling from the David Bohm Papers:

We have begun to update our David Bohm Articles and Essays section to reflect this new material.

 

Short but Interesting Correspondence between Sheldon Goldstein and Steven Weinberg on Bohmian Mechanics

At the Bohmian-Mechanics.net website there is an email exchange posted between Sheldon Goldstein and Steven Weinberg on Bohmian Mechanics.

A quote from this exchange:

Now all this has assumed the adequacy of the Copenhagen interpretation, so that we could compare two adequate formulations – Bohmian mechanics and the Copenhagen interpretation – with respect to simplicity and other criteria for judging theories. But you seem to agree with me that the Copenhagen interpretation is not adequate. You should therefore appreciate why others who agree with us on this, and who are not aware of any other adequate alternatives to the Copenhagen interpretation, might be attracted to Bohmian mechanics: They want to make sense of quantum mechanics, something that the Copenhagen interpretation manifestly does not do and that Bohmian mechanics manifestly does. — Shelly Goldstein
