Book: On Dialogue

On Dialogue by David Bohm

this book was recommended to me by Ari Wallach. it is short and a good plane book .. but the substance is fairly heavy.

Bohm is one of the greatest physicists of the 20th century … and here he takes on an equally daunting challenges … how to get people to create and engage in productive dialog.

this is particularly interesting to me since part of my job is putting people together and making sure that have a good exchange. that is easier to do with some people than others.

while i admire Bohm for taking on this challenge, he failed to enlighten me. i was probably looking for too much or hoping to find wisdom that doesn’t exist. unfortunately, the problem of productive dialog is sure to plague humans for our entire future history.
