Description - On Creativity by Lee Nichol

This is a collection of essays by Bohm, which are all directly related to the nature of creativity - primarily the latent creativity in the human mind, but also the creativity in nature and the universe at large as well. A significant portion of the material draws overtly from Bohm's perceptions as a practising scientist - his notions of what underlies a paradigm shift, or how laws of nature, theories and hypotheses are percieved, rationalized and axiomatized. However, the appeal of Bohm's views of these processes is the suggestion that the work of the visual artist is remarkably similar to that of the scientist. He explores these similarities at length and even goes as far as to suggest that the creative process of the scientist and the artist are at work in every person. This book should be of interest to those who wish to explore the relation between creativity in art and science.
