About the Author

Michael Polanyi (1891-1976) was a Hungarian-British chemist and philosopher, a Fellow of the Royal Society, and a Fellow of Merton College, Oxford. He is the author of many books, including Science, Faith and Society and Personal Knowledge: Towards a Post-Critical Philosophy, both published by the University of Chicago Press.


"Polanyi's work deserves serious attention.... This is a compact presentation of some of the essentials of his thought." - Review of Metaphysics "Polanyi's work is still relevant today and a closer examination of this theory that all knowledge has personal and tacit elements... can be used to support and refute a variety of widely held approaches to knowledge management." - Electronic Journal of Knowledge "Polanyi's account is one of the best we have of how science operates as both a cultural system and a reality-seeking empirical enterprise. The Tacit Dimension is a brilliant defense of both the autonomy of science and its reliance on inherited, unspoken background assumptions that make it possible for scientists to see or make out a vision of reality." - Richard Shweder, University of Chicago"
