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.

This has to be one of the best books I've ever read and I'm 74 and I read a lot. The prose has the clarity that one would expect from a man with a deep understanding of science - certainly much more so than most current writers. If you wish to gain a deep understanding of what science does and how it works read this book. The only caveat: If you ascribe to the postmodern view of the universe you may find this book challenging because it will present you with ideas that will take a good bit of thinking to understand.
