In these inspiring lectures David Bohm explores Albert Einstein's celebrated Theory of Relativity that transformed forever the way we think about time and space. Yet for Bohm the implications of the theory were far more revolutionary both in scope and impact even than this. Stepping back from dense theoretical and scientific detail in this eye-opening work, Bohm describes how the notion of relativity strikes at the heart of our very conception of the universe, regardless of whether we are physicists or philosophers.

David Bohm (1917--1992). A close colleague of Einstein's at Princeton University after World War II, Bohm would himself go on to become one of the great physicists of the twentieth century. Persecuted for his radical politics during the era of the McCarthy hearings, he left the US in 1952 to teach first in Brazil and then in the UK. Popular Science/Physics/Philosophy
