    negotiate offers to permit the Trust to scan the archives and Nachlass of several of them Then in 2013 the Trust began an ongoing program for the scanning of its own archives of documentation linked to the Recordings in order both to put this material on line together with the recordings and to free up space so as to permit an eventual move to smaller premises and thus reduce storage and conservation costs as well as other overheads As a result of the increasing experience gainedin the scanning of extensive paper archives consisting of material in many different sizes and formats and often in a very fragile condition the Trust was asked in August 2013 by The Mittag Leffler Institute of Djursholm Sweden the leading Mathematical Research Institute of Scandinavia to arrange for the digitization of the Archives of Correspondence of its founder Gostag Mittag Leffler the celebrated 19th Century Swedish Mathematician founder of the journal Acta Mathematica These Archives occupying some 64 document boxes and numbering approximately 33 000 pages comprise extensive scientific correspondence between Mittag Leffler and almost every significant mathematician active at any point in the period between 1873 and 1927 The digitized correspondence which is meticulously catalogued is in the hands of the archivist and librarian of the Mittag Leffler Institute the Trust has been advised by the Director of the Institute that it will be made available on line shortly and the Trust has been given permission to carry a mirror site on its web page on which the entire corrsespondence will also be available In addition to the Mittag Leffler archives the Trust has aslo been involved in an initiative currently under way to scan the Archives of the late David Bohm the dsitinguished American Physicist who was for many years professor of Theoretical

    of Goteborg near the very tranquil and attractive coastal resort of Varberg with its ancient fortress One of the first Meetings of note occurred in the Winter of 1989 90 just after the Velvet Revolution had taken place in Prague Georg brought together a group of academics who had been banned from holding positions in The Charles University under the former communist regime and who had been in the forefront of the Movement for Civic Rights and then the eventual Revolution The group included Ivan Havel the brother of the then new Czechoslovak President Vaclav Havel Ivan s wife Dasha who was the Director of The Civic Forum Foundation and Zdenek Neuberger a philosopher biologist Also at the meeting were members of The Dialogue Group which David Bohm had established in London There was an amazing creative energy at this meeting enhanced no doubt by the euphoria of the Czech participants filled with the sense of a long awaited re awakening to political and cultural freedom and civic and national dignity in one of the great spritual nerve centres of Europe and flushed by the success of throwing off almost bloodlessly but nonetheless courageously the shackles of a repressive regime David Bohm very much appreciated that energy and spirit He had always encouraged his students and his colleagues to look at physics and mathematics in a broad philosophical context Yes absolutely they must master the rigorous techniques and mathematical formalism of their chosen discipline but they must not become slaves to these techniques or become trapped by the formalism The question of the significance of this formalism for our understanding of the nature of reality and our place within nature was what was of paramount importance The term philosophy was not to be treated as equivalent to empty speculation or employed as an insult against anyone trying something radically new Without speculation nothing new was likely to emerge except perhaps by some fortunate accidental juggling with mathematical recipes unguided by deeper understanding This attitude was not an endorsement of idle speculation for its own sake but rather of imaginative speculation setting out from a firm grasp of existing theory and its mathematical representation that aimed at a deeper conceptual understanding of the processes of nature an understanding that could not be derived simply from formal manipulations of the mathematical structures nor by staying within the conventional wisdom Of course with freedom comes the danger of chaos and confusion David Bohm was always adamant that it must be exercised with care intellectual honesty and mutual respect These were qualities which he exemplified himself and helped to engender in others David Bohm was passionate in wanting to create the conditions for creativity to flourish He would entertain and explore many ideas normally dismissed as heresy He lived his life on the cutting edge as illustrated by his experiences under McCarthyism and the boldness of his causal interpretation of quantum mechanics He was never inclined to submit tamely to the Zeitgeist whether in
