Abstract

The penetrating dialogues between Jiddu Krishnamurti and David Bohm in The Limits of Thought, is the first time that an in-depth and sustained discussion has been recorded between a leading religious teacher and a prominent physicist. The starting point of their engaging exchange is the question, "Has humanity taken a wrong turn, which has brought about endless division, conflict, and destruction?" Bohm and Krishnamurti explore the nature of humanity and a person's relationship to society, and provide new insights on human thought, death, awakening insight, cosmic order, and the problem of the fragmented mind. At the heart of these discussions lies each of our own ideas about ourselves, a consciousness made up of all sorts of misconceptions about the "me." The friendly dialogue between Krishnamurti and Bohm, spanning almost twenty-five years, probed some of the most essential questions of our very existence.
