David Bohm is widely recognized for his significant contributions to the discussion on the relationship between art and science. In "On Creativity," a collection of essays previously unpublished or difficult to obtain, Bohm explores the question and nature of creativity.
A significant portion of this collection draws overtly from Bohm's perceptions as a practicing scientist--his notions of how laws of nature, theories and hypotheses are perceived and rationalized. However, the novelty and appeal of Bohm's views of these processes is the suggestion that the work of the visual artist is remarkably similar to that of the scientist. He explores these similarities at length and even suggests that the creative processes of the scientist and the artist are at work in every person. "On Creativity" is a fascinating read for those interested in exploring Bohm's position that at its inner core scientific inquiry is richly aesthetic.
