This paper explores the theme “quantum approaches to consciousness”
by considering the work of one of the pioneers in the field. The physicist
David Bohm (1917-1992) not only made important contributions to
quantum physics, but also had a long-term interest in interpreting the
results of quantum physics and relativity in order to develop a general
world view. His idea was further that living and mental processes
could be understood in a new, scientifically and philosophically more
coherent way in the context of such a new world view. This paper gives
a brief overview of different – and sometimes contradictory - aspects
of Bohm’s research programme, and evaluates how they can be used
to give an account of topics of interest in contemporary consciousness
studies, such as analogies between thought and quantum processes, the
problem of mental causation, the mind-body problem and the problem
of time consciousness.
