Day 019 – Bohm dialogue

To show that it is not only pastors like Charlotte Vaughan Coyle who try to live curiosity in their interactions with others, I’d like to mention David Bohm, a renowned quantum physicist. In addition to natural sciences he showed a very active interest in social problems and hoped that genuine dialogue would provide the foundation for solutions. I came across the work of David Bohm when I took several workshops run by Freeman Dhority, formerly of the MIT Dialogue Project, on Bohm dialogue and have been fascinated ever since.

In a future post I’ll introduce the form of asking questions (Inquiry) I learned in these workshops. This was not created by Bohm himself but uses his principles of suspending judgment and exploring the roots of a statement.
