Overview

Explores the thought of twentieth-century philosopher Michael Polanyi.

The Tacit Mode exposes and explores the central insights in Michael Polanyi’s major works. It focuses on his epistemological insights concerning tacit knowing, and explores their ramifications for philosophy, science, art, language, political theory, and religion. The notion of tacit knowledge reconstructs the modern concept of objectivity while avoiding the self-stultifying effects of “deconstructivist” postmodernism and puts Polanyi on the cutting edge of contemporary philosophy.
