On Creativity- David Bohm

In this short text Bohm looks at creativity, what it is, what it means in human life, how it works and various other aspects and particularly in art and science. Bohm shys away from any form of solid definition. Bohm insists that any form of thought, concept, idea which becomes crystalised as truth interferes with the natural flow of reality which is ever changing and never static. The book includes ideas about this flow which he also expanded on earlier in "Wholeness and the Implicate Order". In this book he considers the art of fitting in the flow.
