David Joseph Bohm (20 December 1917 – 27 October 1992) was an American quantum physicist who contributed to theoretical physics, philosophy of mind, and neuropsychology. Due to suspicions of Communism during the McCarthy era, he left the US, eventually becoming a British citizen. Bohm is widely considered to be one of the most significant theoretical physicists of the 20th century.
