Book Description
An authority in physical chemistry, as well as in economics and social science, Michael Polanyi held the view, ‘We can know more than we can tell.’ Hetermed this pre-logical phase ‘tacit knowledge’—a range of conceptual andsensory information and images that can be explored while trying to makesense of something. This kind of knowledge incorporated so much embeddedlearning that its rules were impossible to separate or reproduce in a document.It normally could not be verbalized—but rather demonstrated and imitated.Nor could ‘tacit knowledge’ be formalized as it included tradition and inheritedpractices; it implied values, and pre-judgments; yet it nonetheless formed a crucial part of scientific knowledge. First published in 1966, this book, like all Michael Polanyi`s works, received widespread attention. This reprint brings his work to the attention of a new generation of students and scholars.
