Thought as a System

with Matthew Capowski, Melissa Nelson, Igor Topilsky and Aja Bulla Zamastil

Saturday July 13
9:00am PDT  | 12:00pm EDT  | 5:00pm BST  |  6:00pm CEST 
2-hour session.

The session is live and you will be sent the RECORDING.

Thought as a System is David Bohm’s ur-text pertaining to his views regarding the nature of collective thought. It elucidates core themes of awareness, collective assumptions, social conditioning, dialogue, fragmentation, the self-image, insight, meaning, the observer and the observed, proprioception of thought, thinking vs. thought, and many more.

In this session our roundtable will open up these various facets of Bohm’s perspective, both theoretically as well as in terms of direct personal experience. We will invite members of the audience to contribute to the session, based on their own experience of the many issues raised in this seminal Bohmian text.


Matthew Capowski works in the field of child protection, with a background in psychology. He is  a lifelong student of Ayurveda. As a teenager he encountered a book that contained interviews with David Bohm, and would go on to become a serious student of Bohm’s work pertaining to the problems of humanity.  This would lead him to found the David Bohm Society in 2012, both to ensure preservation of Bohm’s invaluable legacy and to attempt to realize some of Bohm’s proposals by creating living examples.
