*************

In ‹The Undivided Universe› David Bohm, one of the foremost scientific thinkers of the day and one of the most distinguished physicists of his generation, presents a totally new approach to quantum theory. With Basil Hiley, his co-author and long-time colleague, an interpretation of quantum theory is developed which gives a clear intuitive understanding of its meaning and in which there is a coherent notion of the reality of the universe without assuming a fundamental role for the human observer.
