Psychology Press, 1994 - 250 Seiten
Best-selling author David Bohm suggests that collective thought and knowledge have become so automated that we are in large part controlled by them, with a subsequent loss of authenticity, freedom and order.The essential relevance of Bohm's redefinition of thought is the proposal that body, emotion, intellect, reflex, and artifact are now understood as one unbroken field of mutually informing thought. - from the foreword by Lee NicholIn Thought as a System, best-selling author David Bohm takes as his subject the role of thought and knowledge.

He suggests that collective thought and knowledge have become so automated that we are in large part controlled by them, with a subsequent loss of authenticity, freedom and order.
