Beyond Bohm: Science Order and Creativity

Part 1: Physics and Metaphysics


with Emily Adlam, Basil Hiley, Paavo Pylkkänen and Giuseppe Vitiello

Chaired by Shantena Augusto Sabbadini

Pari Center Online Summer Series

July 10 – 11, 17 – 18 and Closing Panel 25, 2021

Two hour sessions on Saturdays and Sundays

All sessions are live; recordings will be available for any sessions you are unable to attend.

David Bohm has given a fundamental contribution to the still ongoing debate on the interpretation of quantum physics, a contribution largely ignored by the mainstream physics community for decades, but now being rediscovered and taken into consideration both in philosophical debate and in mathematical and experimental developments.

This first sequence of Beyond Bohm: Science, Order and Creativity will explore some outer edges of these investigations.

  • It will describe how contextuality (one of the most puzzling features of the quantum world) is represented in the de Broglie-Bohm interpretation of quantum physics and compare it to various alternatives.
  • It will follow up Bohm’s investigation of consciousness in terms of a dialogue between the self and its Double (the representation it constructs of its surroundings).
  • It will outline the Dirac-Bohm picture, a very significant recent mathematical result that provides a different physical intuition with which to understand quantum phenomena.
  • It will illustrate some of Bohm’s key philosophical contributions to a scientific metaphysics and sketch how they could be further developed in future research.

Take this unique opportunity to participate in an exploration of what Bohm’s ideas mean for the future, by former colleagues of David Bohm and scholars of his work.

General Information 

All sessions will last for approximately 2 hours, and will be held over zoom.us. The session structure may vary from speaker to speaker, but in general participants will have the opportunity to ask questions of the presenter and in some cases there will be breakaway discussion groups.

Each session will be hosted by a member of the Pari Center Team, to ensure that the call is running smoothly and assist anyone experiencing technical problems.

During the presentations, we ask participants to turn off their microphone to ensure better quality audio. For this reason, the host may mute a participant’s audio. This is not to silence a participant’s voice, but to ensure an overall good audio quality. If a participant would like to ask a question or make a contribution to the discussion, they can use the ‘raise your hand’ tool in the chat, and then are welcome to turn on their microphone.

We invite all participants to turn on their video camera, as we believe that seeing everyone creates an inclusive educational environment. However, if any participant is uncomfortable, they are free to turn off the camera.

All sessions will be recorded. The recordings will not include the possible breakout-room discussions, but only the speaker’s presentation, follow-up discussions and Q&A. If a participant does not feel comfortable being recorded, we invite that participant to turn off their video and audio throughout the session. These recordings are available to anyone who has purchased a ticket for an attended session, or for a session they have paid for but were unable to attend.
