Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This copy arrived looking as though it had been read many times. Reading Polanyi is a great way to fall asleep. Ms. Scott's book wakes you up to his thinking. I understand that he developed his theory to let a Soviet scientist know how science really works. The scientist was executed before he could read the books. I based my first person narrative experientialist's approach to understanding complex phenomena on this little tattered book.

Drusilla Scott has done a great job of clarifying and giving some organization to Polanyi's thoughts on knowing and understanding how we know. This should be read before reading Polanyi's works themselves because it gives a frame work to start from. This may be one of the best books to start with if you want an understanding of how the Enlightenment is fading.
