A Response to David Bohm


The paper ‘Religion as Wholeness and the Problem of Fragmentation’ was presented by Professor David Bohm in September 1983. David Bohm’s brilliance as a physicist is never in question. This paper, however, highlights some of the flaws in his psychodynamic analysis as he turns his attention to the behaviour of social systems. Particular attention is paid to his treatment of the origin, implications, and management of fragmentation in human behaviour.
