Inhaltsangabe: 2013 Reprint of 1962 American Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. This edition reprints the text from the 1962 Revised Edition originally published by The University of Chicago Press. In this classic text Polanyi argued that the scientist is not a detached observer in the world of research: rather the scientist's personal participation in his knowledge, both in its discovery and its validation, is an indispensable part of science itself. Even in the exact sciences knowing is an art, in which the skill of the knower, guided by his passionate sense of increasing contact with reality, forms a logically necessary part. In the biological and social sciences this becomes even more evident. Polanyi argues against the urge to make knowledge impersonal.
Inhaltsangabe: This study, first published in 1958, offers Michael Polanyis' epistemological insights. Polanyi, originally a chemist and chemical physicist, is widely acclaimed for his epistemology which opposes the prevailing positivist approaches. His discussion of tacit knowledge has proved to be influential in many fields from theology to artificial intelligence. This text represnts a contribution to 20th-century thought, and continues to make valuable insights to our understanding of how knowledge functions.
